    @Max, will the mass fix be installed with the v22 update if I allow Alibre Design to update when I start up? (I've been having it "remind me tomorrow" until the mass fix was made). Thanks!

    +1. I personally prefer scientific notation, but I can see why it might be counterintuitive as well.

    Please Max, can you post a copy of that assembly? :p:D

    The mass fix is in build 22053, which is available now if you just let it update at start up.

    I'm not Max but here is one of mine. The part is completely centered on the origin - but look at the results.
