Is there a way when doing a drawing to avoid getting 1/32" or 1/16" dimensions? I have set my grid to 1/8" and the origin on a corner of whatever I am drawing. Is this an Idiosyncrasy of the software, computer age, mouse, drive, etc. or is there a setting to correct this?

In the Dimension menu, you can set your rounding precision
Dimensions/Dim. Style/Rounding/Precision

I don't use rounding as it just compounds into a lot of little issues thru the drawing. I suspect that the culprit may be the snap to the nearest point being turned on may be the culprit in the course of creating the drawing. I was just curious as to whether different computers, mice, age of hard drives may have on it. I tried setting the snapping grid to 1/8" but it did not seem to make a difference.

I'd just like if "rounding" had a higher limit. For large-scale drawing and sitework I need rounding in inches or even feet in associative dimensions. Paticularly in conceptual drawings. IIRC the upper limit is 1/8th or 1/16th-inch now?

Yes, this would be really helpful!
