World Coordinate object issue

Hello everyone, using the world coordinate object I'm encountering a little problem(or limitation of the object itself), I'm unable to show more than 2 decimal after seconds(even if I set 4 decimal in project origin), I try to change working unit and tollerance, but nothing changes, do you think there may be a way to overcome this problem??

Thank you in advance
ps. added a screenshot to be more explicative

Unfortunately this object doesn't have this option.
Your alternative is to edit it and change some code.
If you are confident with GDL code, the workflow is:
1. Find in your AC24 Library a Macro called "coordinateDim_m";
2. Open it and go to the 2D script and replace:
This 2 lines:
	text_x_coor = LONG_LETTER + " " + STR(LONG_DEGREE,1,0) + "° " + STR(LONG_MINUTE,1,0) + "' " + STR(LONG_SECOND,3,2) + "''"
	text_y_coor = LAT_LETTER  + " " + STR(LAT_DEGREE, 1,0) + "° " + STR(LAT_MINUTE, 1,0) + "' " + STR(LAT_SECOND, 3,2) + "''"
With:
	text_x_coor = LONG_LETTER + " " + STR(LONG_DEGREE,1,0) + "° " + STR(LONG_MINUTE,1,0) + "' " + STR(LONG_SECOND,5,4) + "''"
	text_y_coor = LAT_LETTER  + " " + STR(LAT_DEGREE, 1,0) + "° " + STR(LAT_MINUTE, 1,0) + "' " + STR(LAT_SECOND, 5,4) + "''"
I think this will do the trick.
Cheers,

I follow your instruction.
I could find the Macro and replace the GDL code.

[list=]

  • BUT it´s still a problem. I don't have the right to save the change.The Macro is just "read only"


    [list=]
  • For your information is the library on a bimcloud basic.
    How is the procedure to unlock this macro?

    Best Regard

    Hi Gwen,
    It looks like your library is compacted in a .lcf file. If it is the case, then you will have to extract all the content of the library to a dedicated folder and finally get access and edit the "coordinateDim_m" macro.
    Hope this helps.
