Good day everyone just encountered this lines; in the length "i" i have value with negative exponential value the samples are attached.

Are there gis digitization practices to eliminate this scenario? Particularly in zoom ref?

Negative exponential just means that the length is <1. If you change the formatting of Length (I) to 5 decimal points for example you will see their length as decimals.

See the Formatting Columns topic in the Tables book in the User Manual.

... right click onto a column head and choose Format from the context menu. ... [from user manual]

This is not working for me with 168.7. No context menu (on my german system).

I think Dimitri refers to M8.

Displayed precision can't yet be adjusted in 9. (Except by use of a computed field with custom rounding.)

The inference (natural but not bulletproof) from the use of Length (I) is that question was about 8.
