Entered Distances Rounding Up

Can someone tell me why it is when I enter a dimension or distance (example OffSet=distance .495" rounds to .500") the value needed rounds up to the next highest number? How can I change this?

Try going to "Options",  "Drawing Setup" increase your precision under "Space Units".

The Precision and Roundoff settings will also have to be adjusted if you are not getting what you want.  You'll find them on the Units/Tolerance tab when you invoke Properties (typing Ctrl-F is the easiest way) when you are adding a Dimension measurement.

NOTE: Please excuse the accidentally transparent color making some text difficult to read.  It doesn't affect what you need to see.
