Good morning Mr Phelps,

Does anyone know if there is a file in the program that formats how the calculation is outputted to the drawing when the measured (and calculated) area and/or perimeter is spat out? For example, if I get an output "Area=738.379878252572 ft2", what I want, and I have to manually adjust it to is "Area= 738.38 ft²"
so I'm looking for changing the output text format, and for rounding. I don't see any buttons that would allow me to customize the printed output.
Can I do that, or at least change the output text, by messing with a file that I shouldn't be messing with? Or would this be an impossible mission?
