I am a new user  (TC LTE Pro 8x64} and cannot get my dimensions and accuracy to work for me.  i need to be able to draw and dimension accurately to 1/64" and cannot get it done.  i don't know if i am not able to draw to this degree of accuracy or the dimension and measure tools accuracy is not set right. i have tried all the methods in the tutorial and even got to the point i could draw and measure to nearest 1/32. but when i change tools and go back to dimension or measure every thing goes south and i can only get to nearest 1/8. must be a command that overrides the info put in to the properties menu.  any help greatly appreciated.  ty

Right Click the dimensions in the toolbar and under primary units set precision to 6.

The Dimensions precision is under 'Units/Tolerance' and you also have to set the Round Off to 1E-06.
