In the process of assigning thermal conductivity values (BTU-ft/hr.ft2.F) to building materials.
Its seems to automatically round to 2 decimal places. That makes the values for rigid insulation and fibreglass batts at the same value! Any ideas?

It looks like the number of displayed decimal places is controlled by Preferences > Working Units > Angle & Font Size Decimals in Dialog Boxes (for the Physical Properties in the Building Material dialog box).

maybe the ArchiCAD template file and default work environment should be set to a higher number of places to start. Seems odd that 1/64 is the default for working units, but other values are set less fine.
