PDF Xchange Editor - How to increase the number of significant figures of measur [Solved]

-
Hi there,

I use PDF Xchange Editor to take a number of measurements in scaled architectural and engineering drawings. I use the "Distance Tool", but I can only ever get whole number values (ie. 10', 9', 2', 314', etc.). Is there a way to adjust the settings to give me more accurate values (ie. 3.14', 6.96', 315.98', etc.)?

make that inches
Thanks for the response! As it turns out, my solution was to create a new measurement that included the number of decimal places I wanted. Here's what I did:

From the Format tab (Properties toolbar in my version), I sleected an existing custom measurement and modified the scale by simply adding decimal placeholders (for example, changing 1 ft to 1.00 ft) and that allows me to show feet to the second decimal place. This helped:
