Setting decimal places in sketch

ken_sojdaken_sojda Member Posts: 3
I am sketching in inch units and want to see dimensions in 4 place decimal.
Is there a way to do this either globally or for a particular document?
All I get is 3 place on linear dimensions and 2 place on angles.

    Hamburger icon, top left when you start a document. There you will find units to decide on inches/mm etc.
    @ken_sojda   you can change the precision on drawings see below: Whilst modeling you will see the exact dimensions which you need to change
    to exact values if you want them exact during modeling, otherwise it would not work for global 3D operating system.

    I see that dialog box in drawings but in sketch the box only asks for the value.
    If I enter .3754 it accepts the value but rounds to .375 when I close the box.
    I assume it is using the actual 4 place decimal but is confusing when I am enter dimension in tenths,
