Q - question

Rounding decimal numbers in drawing texts.

A - answer If you need to round decimal numbers in drawing texts in AutoCAD DWG drawings, you can use the free utility CADstudio RoundT.

Download the add-on application from, load it with APPLOAD and run the RoundT command. After you select the texts, the command prompts for the number of decimal places to round. All selected texts (DText/MText and block attributes) which are pure decimal numbers will be rounded to the specified number of decimal places:

The application supports both point and comma as the decimal separators. A negative number of decimal places means that also the trailing zeroes will be displayed.

Using RoundT:

Since version 1.3 you can also use the command ROUNDT2 to round any decimal numbers inside longer strings and MText codes. Or use NumInText.
