Dimension and Coordinate Readout Options

It would be useful to be able to choose the level of accuracy of the dimensions and coordinate readouts, globally for all tools. Currently these are reported differently:

Linear and vertical dimensions are shown with 4 decimal.

Area is shown with 4 decimal places.

Perimeter is shown with 3 decimal places.

XYZ Coordinates are shown with 2 decimal places.

Lat/Long is shown with degrees, min, sec. Decimal would also be useful.

These should all be reported to 3 decimal places as a metric standard with the option to increase or decrease the accuracy.
