I want to locate a line 1/8-inch (0.125") from the margin. LOD truncates that to 0.13". Is there a way to get 3-places?

o Go to Tools | Options... | LibreOffice Draw | General | Scale.
o Set "Drawing scale" to 1:10.
o Locate your line at 1.25".

Nope.  The line is set to 0.13" from the margin.

How can you know that? With the scale set to 1:10, the position shows as 1.25", not 0.13" or anything like it. Where are you getting that figure from?

With the display zoom set to 200%, if I change the position from 1.25" to 1.34" (both of which round to 0.13" at a scale of 1:1), the line jumps visibly when I click OK. That contradicts what you suggest: the two values produce different line positions.

I think the ball's in your court: can you tell us, please, what you are doing to make the behaviour different for you? ("Nope" doesn't quite cut it.)
