Thousands-delimeter for numbers in Entity info dialogue


#1

I model in cm, so the volume is in cm3, ok…

But i need volumes in m3.
Currently i have to highlight some digits to get a good reading.

So, what about formatting the number with thousand-delimiter according to the locale’s number fromat?
Eg. for Switzerland it would be apostroph’s:

17’982’456.44cm3
This would be easyer to read as 17.98 m3.

Alternatively or adittionally there could be settings for Area and Volume on the model info dialogue.

Yes, this need is quite common, and has been requested in the past. (Although most users want the dialogs and text callouts to use m^3.)

Along with this is the request to choose the Area and Volume units for the Report Generator output.
