Missing Decimal Point Hurts Perceived Measurement Accuracy


I have been having a lot of success expanding my business beyond real estate leveraging the measuring tools within iGuide. Some examples include:

  1. HVAC companies designing ducting routes and installation requirements
  2. The design off wall graphics for large or small retail and other environments
  3. Project estimating in a variety of categories - cabinetry, tile, glass, construction etc.

Where the accuracy today is somewhat limited, I continue to get new opportunities.

One thing that has caused problems though is the inconsistency in reporting out of measurement data. The problem is that once a measurement length includes feet the decimal disappears from the measurement even though a shorter measurement right next to it does express the last digit.
See example attached.

I have a major project on the horizon and like other clients, they want this last digit to help with accuracy. Adding potential rounding error to the deviation in the system causes a larger deviation then the technical specifications state.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is an image that more clearly shows the measuring bug. Height is showing the decimal, but the length is missing the decimal. This is bad for several reasons:

  1. It looks like the length measurement is less accurate
  2. It is confusing to clients who want that digit
  3. It looks inconsistent.

If others have solved this problem I am looking for a solution to not miss an opportunity:)
