very easy, go to options on the main toolbar select document properties tab -select units from the drop down menu - click on unit type and set number of required decimal places etc. I normally set them to 4 places of decimals

Thank You Aniket Gaunkar! That was super easy to follow, and now, I'm going to save a lot of time by not re-changing all the unit specs for every new part I make.
