dimmensions approximation

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi. Does anyone knows how to approximate dimensions to 0,5 (4,73 to 4,5). There is an option that alows to do that but by adding an upper index to dimension. I wish to have the rounding to 0,5 after comma (it's not common in Poland that dimensions are as upper index - not in architecture).

Anyone, please help.

It can be set in the Dimensions page of the Project Preferences Dialog.
See attached image.

Thx for Your replay. Unfortunately it gives me exactly what i already know. The rounding will be given as an index.

For example, as i have 875,26 it gives me what I added:
Change "Decimals" in Laszlo's example to "1"

Yes, that is what I did and that is what it gives me as the result.
Do you have "Working Units" in Project Preferences set to 1 decimal place, too?

EDIT: Ignore above. If you set Decimals to 0, and rounding to .5, you will get what you want, except for the commas.

Yes, that's correct. Unfortunately the commas are what i need to hand the documentation do the department.
It's not the end of the world that i have roundings like 0,2 or 0,4. It just looks unprofessional and i was hoping that someone knows the solution to that in archicad.
Anyway, thx for Your effort.
