Numeric Data Entry Field and Course Resume

Just wondering if there is an identified issue with a Numeric Entry field and course resume?

Go to Insert > Data Entry > Numeric entry field and add such a field to a course with resume always on.

Per this documentation ( http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/adding-data-entry-fields.aspx ), you can enter numeric data entry fields and the field can accept numbers, decimals, and hyphens preceding negative numbers.

You publish the course and you can enter decimal numbers:

You exit the course and re-launch it and then navigate back to the same slide.  The value has been truncated:

Any way around this so the numeric value originally entered is completely retained?

Basically Storyline Numeric Input field doesnot save all decimals. Older versions probably truncated the input to an integer, Storyline360 now rounds decimal numbers to 2 decimals max.

So if you input 1.238954 in a Numeric input field Storyline rounds that internally to 1.24 and on resume shows 1.24 instead of 1.238954.

A workaround for this is using a temporary string to save your decimal value.
Like in the attached SL360 file. On input the value is stored in a text variable, that you can use on resume. You have to  change that string back to a numeric value to use it in calculations offcourse...
