Bug Description

Objects and nodes can be located to the 0.000 decimal place. Grids and
guides can only be located to the 0.00 decimal place.

Why do grids and guides only have a 0.00 precision?

Grids and Guides fixed, Document size and Clone tool to go.

I should point out that the Clone tool is also only precise to 0.00
instead of 0.000!

I'd like to see 0.000 precision for document size as well.

Guides have 3 digits precision since revision 16113 (dating from 2007-09-21). Grids even have 4 digits of precision in current SVN (rev 16680).
This narrows this RFE down to providing 3-digit precision in Clone tool and for document size.

Can this be bumped up from 'Wishlist' to a higher priority?

For professional printing this can be a problem for document sizes with only 2 points of precision. Converting a document size of 3.75" x 2.25" to .pdf results in 3.76" x 2.26" which causes issues.

I just gave you 5 digits behind the comma in the document settings dialog :P

I increased the significant digits in document size and clone tile dialogs. Hopefully satisfying.

@Johan - any chance you could take a look at the inconsistency described in this follow-up report?
- Bug #1076428 “Document size (mm) won't stay precise size”
(based on my quick tests it seems to be a side-effect of the additional significant digits added in the GUI)
