dimension setting in linked worksheet to does not display to setting in Project Options/Dimensions

Not applicable
Mac OS 10.15.4 Catalina
Archicad 23, USA FULL 3003

I am resetting the dimension type for a 0.5 inch fraction in the Project Options/Dimensions menu in a linked Worksheet in View Map to a Drawing placed in a Layout Book drawing sheet.

I change the Dimension Option to the 1/2” setting, save the file; when I go back to the Layout Book sheet the dimensions displayed are detailed to 1/64” tolerance. When I return to the worksheet and go back to Options/Project Preferences/to Dimensions; it is set back to 1/64".

Searched for every option to correct and can’t get it to stick to and accept the 1/2” dimension tolerance.

Could this be a software glitch, I don't think so? I am able to make it work in other placed drawings in other layout books and have copied the properties of those drawings to this drawing and no acceptance in this worksheet drawing.

1. Go to the Layout and select the Drawing.
2. Right-click and choose the "Modify Source View Settings" command.
3. In the "Dimensioning" field, select the 1/2 inch option.
4. Click OK and update the Drawing on the Layout.
