Specifies properties for a new unit of measure rule. This dialog box displays when you click New on the Select Rule dialog box. The properties displayed are inherited from the context in which the unit of measure label is created (that is, Session, Report, or Drawing).

Rule Name

Specifies a name for the unit of measure rule.

Description

Describes the unit of measure rule.

Inherit from Session, Reports, Drawing

Indicates that the parameter should use the same units used in the session, the report, or the drawing. This option is selected by default, which makes the Properties read-only.

To change the existing values, clear this option. You can then define a value for the Unit Delimiter property.

Properties

Unit

Displays the type of unit, such as distance.

Primary

Specifies the primary unit of measure, such as yards in yards, feet, or inches.

Secondary

Specifies the secondary unit of measure, such as feet in yards, feet, or inches.

Tertiary

Specifies the tertiary unit of measure, such as inches in yards, feet, or inches.

Displayed Unit

Turns the display of the units on and off.

Precision Type

Specifies Decimal, Fractional, or Scientific. Your selection in this box determines the availability of the remaining boxes on this dialog box.

Decimal Precision

Specifies the number of places after the decimal point. This value can be 0 or greater.

Leading Zero

Places a zero before the decimal point, if applicable.

Trailing Zeros

Places zeros after the last significant digit, if applicable.

Fractional Precision

Specifies a fraction for the precision. The highest value that you can specify is 1/2. This box is available only if you select Fractional in the Precision Type box.

Reduce Fraction

Reduces the fraction. For example, displays 3/4 instead of 6/8. This box is available only if you select Fractional in the Precision Type box.

Unit Delimiter

Specifies the unit delimiter that you want to add between primary and secondary units in a report label. For example, 4'-3 3/4". This box is disabled if you leave the secondary unit as <BLANK> or if Inherit from Session, Reports, Drawing option is selected.

  • If you do not set the unit delimiter value, the software places two space characters between the primary and secondary units.

  • You can define one unit delimiter value.

  • If you want spaces between the units and the unit delimiter, add spaces to the unit delimiter value, such as "-".
