Decimal places on dimensions - ArchiCAD 23


Is there a way to view 3 decimal places on 'Length Unit' and 'Layout Unit' in ArchiCAD 23 Solo? These options are there in Personal Preferences > Working Units but greyed out so I can't select them. Hoping there is a way to activate them through the programme or via a plug-in.


Any tips would be great!

The number of decimals available depends on the units you use.

Set to meters and you can have up to 4 decimal places.

Set to millimeters and you can only have up to 1 decimal.


Effectively the same number, just a different unit of measure.

You can only see down to 0.1mm of accuracy in the dialogues - although you can type in more (you just can't see it).

Working Units will not change how your dimensions are shown, only how you measure and place things.
