decimal digits in Fields

Hi There
Running BricsCAD V19
i'm creating fields in Text which containing the area of an polyline. I made them by 2 decimal digits.
So when i open the drawing again, there are 6 decimal digits displayed. I need to click in the field an press the ok button in this field dialog to update the digits.
Why do they change when i open the drawing?
Regards Martin

  • If you check the field expression you will see that there is a missing double quote at the end. Are you creating the field programmatically?

    This:
    %<\AcObjProp.16.2 Object(%<\_ObjId 639930800>%).AREA \f "%lu2%pr2%ct8[1]>%

    Should be:
    %<\AcObjProp.16.2 Object(%<\_ObjId 639930800>%).Area \f "%lu2%pr2%ct8[1]">%

  • BTW:
    To fix this in V18 I reselect the precision in the Field dialog and then press OK. Only pressing OK is not enough.

  • Thanks a lot, Roy...
    this little double thing. I need glasses
