More Decimals of line and font height

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm just moving from indesign to Publisher. While all is quite impressing there is one thing I miss or better said do not know how this could be changed.

Whenever I define a font size or line height of let's say 10.75 the value jumps to 10.8. How can I stop rounding of numbers and keep the two digits of .75?

 

Thanks!

Toni

Welcome to the Affinity forums.

Go to Preferences>User Interface and alter the settings in the area highlighted on my screenshot below:

It doesn't really change. The displayed value is just rounded off (& that can be controlled as @emmrecs01 mentioned) but internally the precision is even higher than the maximum of 6 decimal places that can be displayed.

If you do calculations in the value fields (e.g. * 2 to double a value) make sure to delete the existing value and type * 2 only.
Otherwise the currently visible, rounded value will be used for the calculation and may annoy you with unexpected results.
