Change Decimal Places Default

Hello, wonderful internet people & fellow Illustrators


I'm wondering if it's possible to change the decimal place accuracy to default to only rounded numbers i.e. 1mm instead of 1.325. I want EVERYTHING to snap to the nearest mm (Axis, Dimensions etc.) rather than 1.233 for example.


Yes, I can manually type into the dims / axis boxes everytime but thats a chore.


Any help is greatly appreciated! TIA

    I am afraid that any rounding would only affect what you see and give you what you get already.


    You may ease some of the pain by adjusting the Edit>Preferences>General>Keyboard Increment.


    The original default is 1 point (1/72 inch or just under 0.3528 mm, more precisely 0.352777777 etc).
