chrisb wrote:I found a solution: open Preferences->General->Units and change the value of "Number of decimals" to 3. After saving the tool selection works as expected. (If you want to have 2 you can change it back).

Hint for the developers (it took me half a day to find out): The problem seems to be a missing entry in the user.cfg:

Code: Select all

      <FCParamGroup Name="Preferences">
        <FCParamGroup Name="Units">
          <FCInt Name="UserSchema" Value="0"/>
          <FCInt Name="Decimals" Value="3"/>
        </FCParamGroup>


Hope this helps!


I can confirm that this works!

I think I found the origin of this issue. No time to fix it yet.
