Summary0004737: Increasing Number of decimals doesn't incrase the number of decimal places shown
DescriptionIf for a dimension constraint (pretty much anything requiring you to enter a number) I set a floating point number that has 5 decimal places, unless I open the dimension for editing, I only see 4 decimal places, despite Number of Decimals under Preferences > General > Units being set to 5 (Chrisb has it set to 6 and can see 6 decimal places).

If I increase Number of decimals, I still continue to see only 4 decimal places. The only thing that changes is that if I open the dimension for editing, there is now an extra 0 at the end.

Forum Post
Steps To Reproduce1. Set a dimension constraint on an element in Sketcher and set it to a floating point number having more decimal places than what Number of decimals is set to
2. Check how many of the decimal places are being shown
3. Increase the value of Number of decimals
4. See that the number is showing the same and the only thing that changed is that you now have an extra 0 or more at the end of the number when you open the constraint for editing.

The current behavior is much probably correct regarding what the coder wants to implement.
Let's talk on if we want something different on the forum thread before continuing this ticket.

This bug also applies when you set e.g. only 2 digits in the general preferences of FreeCAD. Here is a bug report about this:
