Q - question

How to round a field to the nearest 5 units.

A - answer How to round the value displayed in the dynamic field label to the nearest 5 units? E.g. to read "680" instead of the true 677, or "675" instead of true 676 units.

You can use the round function mentioned in the Tip 6381. Use round(XXX/5)*5.

Instead of XXX, right-click to insert a nested field and choose e.g. the object area property (do not use unit suffix). This will make the field dynamic. The resulting field code will look something like:

%<\AcExpr (round(%<\_FldPtr 325850784>%/5)*5)>%
