Setting number of decimal places in a table on a drawing
When creating an equation in a drawing general table, is it possible to define the number of decimal places of the cell? For example, making 1/3 (0.33333333) appear as 0.33.

Yes, it is possible to set the decimal places in a cell. Use the "{}" button in the equation window, then insert the number of decimal places between the brackets. Then insert the formula.

For example:
{2}1/3 will give a result of 0.33
