Our standard is that English dimensions have trailing zeroes but no leading zeroes. Metric is the opposite - leading zeroes but no trailing zeroes. Is there any way to do that?
For example: .020 [0.5]

As far as the two places of precision, that's easy enough. Just select two digits from the drop-down for Dual precision instead of one. I know you said you want to hide trailing zeros for mm, but I don't think that's going to be possible if you want them to show for inches.
And, as Newell Voss posted above, it looks like selecting "Standard" for Leading zeros will show them for mm but hide for inches, which you said you want. (I love it when I learn something new, even if I'll probably never use it.) Does this get you close enough to where need to be?
Is this what you are looking for?
Only if I can make it apply only to metric dimensions.
I'm not aware of any way, and I'm pretty sure there isn't one.
Start from the ANSI standard, set leading zeroes to "standard" and trailing zeroes to "smart"
This is what has always worked for me.
That's not working for me.
that does not look like an ANSI formatted dimension - usually does not have the line between the dual dims.
That's from the "split" checkbox, at the bottom of the property manager.
"split" is not an option for my ANSI formatted dims (SW 2018 SP3.0).
did a little more playing, and it does seem to be a limitation - only seems to work for zero (which is the only time we would normally see trailing zeroes on our metric dims on our inch designed parts).
There is no SW.
I can not remember.
does not it have to be like this anyway?
I would prefer the zeroes looked like Newell shows them (though we have metric on the bottom).
I got dimensions to look like what you said you want, mostly. However, as you can see, it's rounding off the metric dimensions to one decimal, and if a dimension was smaller than 1mm it wouldn't show the leading zero. Do you work with dimensions that small, and do you need two decimals of precision on mm dimensions?
It helps, I guess. Thanks.
Here is how your settings to look.
Unless you want your trailing zeros to come off (as is per standard) select standard for the second drop-down as well. then you can manually adjust individual dims if you need to show more values for tolerance allowance.
Thanks to all for your efforts!
