Next, adding 1 new rounding option (5/10mm) in "Dimension Options" - it's so difficult? I think that "no".
I agree with you on this but the whole point about "sloppy" is about making sure that you do the job properly and that you document were you are doing exceptions.

Yes, the colour marking or asterisk - normal solution. Dimensions with 5 or 0 at the end needs more for convenience of builders to don't catch 1,2,3 etc mm and operates with 5 and 10 mm only.

Need the possibility to shift from actual true dimensions to rounded (for any drafts), not more. That's all.

In the Dimension Settings Page of the Project Preferences Set these:
Units: meter
Decimals: 2
Extra Accuracy: 5

Units: centimeter
Decimals: 0
Extra Accuracy: 5

But you will not be able to achieve this with Units set to Millimeters.

laszlonagy, yes, this trick and one another (with centimeters too) are sidetracks. Would like to standard solution for millimeters...

On the whole, this is a microwish, but from that "nothing" the big whole sums.
