Fractional

e.g. 324 31/32"

Feet and fractional inches

Precision

Here you can set the precision of entering the length format (decimal places, fractions) according to setting of the type.

Unit

Here you can set the length/area unit of material (mm, cm, dm, m, '', '/m2,ft2). This option is accessible only when the decimal or fractional type is set. When other types are set, this option is disabled. Defined Unit is shown in the length and width of material in the program and also in printing reports.

XD_MsgTip

Tip: You can also set your own length unit by writing it to combo box or you don't need to fill it in at all. In this case the length unit won't be shown.

XD_MsgNote

Note: Because for each length format internal storage of data is different, change of length type and precision doesn't convert already entered data. Therefore, it is necessary to consider this option carefully at the beginning of working with this program.
