Is it possible to rotate a path to more than one decimal place?

Recommended Posts

I have an urgent need to create a ring, where along the ring there are 'tick marks' like degrees on a compass, however, due to the nature of the project, I need to be very specific about where these 'ticks' lie around the circle, such that some need to be at a decimal precision of about 8 places. 

As far as I can tell, Designer only supports rotation precision to 1 decimal place. 

Is there an option or away to increase this to at the very least 4?

I am not sure of the internal precision, but it must be at least to 6 decimal places, because that is the maximum that can be set in Preferences > User Interface. Note that the preference setting is just for the display of numeric values in the UI -- everything is done at the maximum internal precision of the app.

Please note that you can use an expression instead of a decimal value. For example, if you type 360/17 you’ll probably get a better result than if you simply approximate it as 21.17647059.

My problem is that I have to use logarithmic functions to spit out an 'angle' that can be up to 8 decimal places, and that's the point at which I have to draw my 'tick' mark. 

I doubt I can enter a logarithmic and sine / tan / arcsine function in the angle field. :/
