Open the Dimensions Property and change to your like.
Move the cursor to the Dimensiontool, leftclick and it's Property open, og down to the Units/Tolerance and change it there, see attached.
Note that you can have max 9 "0"'s but only the number in Presision will be numbers, the rest will only show "0"'s
Like it show in Attached will give you 2 decimals becouse of 0,01 = 2 and presisions = 2

There you also can turn on/ of Append Units ( mm in this case)

After that you can go up to the Format and set the text style/ size you want

re: …I do not want all those zeros…

Another option to try is uncheck "Trailing Zeros" on the "Units/Tolerance" page.
