I have a sheet of labels meant for small organizing containers that are quite small (0.3"x0.5") with a 0.075" space between labels. Since LibreOffice only allows 0.01" granularity on the label template dimensions, by the bottom of an 8.5" sheet (9 x 22 labels), that adds up to +/- 0.1" vertically which is a full 1/3 of the label, and on the right +/- 0.04" horizontally, which is about 10% of the label. For labels of this size, 0.001" granularity, or at least 0.005", would make the difference between usable and unusable.
If Writer's unit of measurement is set to metric (Tools>Options>LibreOffice Writer>General), label templates can be created with a granularity of 0.01mm, which is finer than 0.001", and it works just fine, so Writer is definitely able to handle that fine of measurements, it's just a matter of how the dimensions are stored.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to chenge the summary of this issue to something as:
"using inches for dimensions doesn't allow a fine enough resolution (compared to metric)" or something like that?
If so, can you pls do that?
thanks a lot,
I tend to close this issue as WFM because of comment 2 or as WONTFIX if it's too much work for a small benefit.

There is bug 44267 talking about this problem and also bug 72662 where I attached a mockup how the UI might be changed. Ultimately we would have to fix bug 103322 first, I guess.
My take here: make it a duplicate of 44267.
