Description Chuck 2021-06-09 13:54:10 UTC
Grid options not retained on Apply or OK and the result yields an incorrect grid and incorrect dimension line values.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set scale to 1:16.  
2. Set resolution to 0.75" for both horizontal and vertical.  
3. Set Subdivision to 96 for both horizontal and vertical.  
4. Click Apply.  

These settings should yield a grid with lines at 12" and subdivisions every 1/8".  Drawing dimensions lines using this setting yields incorrect values due to the value of 96 not being retained. I had similar problems with dimemsion lines even when the subdivision value is retained.  E.G., using a value of 48 should yield 1/4" (0.25") divisions, however, dimension lines would occasionally yield values with x.74 instead of always breaking at x.00, x.25, x.50, and x.75. I suspect there is a rounding problem in the calculation somewhere.

Actual Results:
Subdivision values will change to 99 and not retain the value of 96.

Expected Results:
Subdivision values will retain the value of 96.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
The dialog box should not change the user entered value of 96

Hello chuck,

Thanks for reporting the bug.
Unfortunately without specific steps to reproduce it, it is difficult to track down the origin of the problem.
Please provide a more detailed set of step-by-step instructions on how to reproduce the issue, including where to adjust resolution and subdivision.
