Hi there!

I have used Archicad 11 for three months now and haven't found a problem that the "Help" section couldn't solve. Until now.

Here's the problem:

Zone decimals in Project Map won't show in Layout Book. Instead of showing 1, all zones show 3.

Here's what I did: Options --> Project Preferences --> Area Calculations and over there i chose decimal "1". All zones in Project Map are OK, but when I change to Layout book, every zone has 3 decimals. Tried changing different values, tried updating zones.. and nothing seems to fix this.

I hope pictures can help to understand :)

Layout book gets all the view settings including dimensions from the view set not from the project map. Choose modify source view settings when right clicking on a layout name and make sure you have right dimensions set that you have stored in the project preferences.
