Precision of Mass Property in a drawing.

I have a field in my title block that shows the mass of the part. I
want the display in the drawing to show the mass with a .1 lb precision.
Right now, the display precision is based on the precision within the
part. I have set, within the drawing, Tools/Options/Document
Properties/Units/"Mass/Section property units"/Decimal Places/ to 1.
This does not seem to have any actual effect on the drawing. Is this
correct, or is it a bug?
I have tried notes both as
$PRPSHEET:"Weight"
and
"SW-Mass@$PRPSHEET:"SW-File Name".SLDPRT"
The Weight is a custom property in the part or assembly file that is
linked to the mass of the part or assembly. I think I set it up this
way originally so that I don't have to specify SLDPRT or SLDASM in the
title block.
Thanks for any help.

Clip -- want the display in the drawing to show the mass with a .1 lb precision.
Brian,
Using SW2006 SP5.0, I have found that the units as set in the drawing do not work. To correct the display in the drawing, I had to change the setting in the model (part or assembly) then the number of decimal places displayed as needed. Of course this presents a problem in itself. You would definitely want or require a higher precision at the part or assembly level. Good catch. Time to submit a "BUG Report". Eddie
