I am using ArcGIS Pro 1.4.0. My current problem is that all new numeric values (float and double) are being rounded into whole numbers in the attribute table of shapefiles. According to this ArcGIS Desktop help site Formatting numeric fields in tables ,
"six is the default number of decimal places to display in the Table window."
However, this does not seem to be the case for my version of ArcGIS. For example, see below image. First, I calculated the geometry of gridcells in my shapefile (POLY_AREA). Next, I created a new field and calculated it to equal POLY_AREA. As displayed, all numbers are rounded to the whole number. I've included the python window in the clipped image for reference. Also, I am not sure what version of ArcMAP the original shapefiles were created in, but definitely pre-ArcGIS pro. The issue continues to occur even after exporting/copying them several times within pro.
In this instance, the rounding is not a problem; however, moving forward I will be conducting calculations on many small decimals. I know how to manually change the display, but it is very tedious to do tens or hundreds of times.
Is this a bug, or does anyone know how to globally change the default display of numeric values?
