Photoshop CC 20.x: Artboard > Export As to support better than 2 decimal point granularity (worked fine in 19.1.6)

When you use Export As for an Artboard the granularity is 1%, i.e. if you enter 0.625 it is rounded up to 0.63. This is a massive limitation when it comes to exporting artboards and is an issue that was not in 19.1.6, where it worked fine.

Where are you seeing this? In objects in the artboard or the artboard itself? Also, which measurement units are you using?

Thanks

Hi Tom, Sorry for the slow response.

I need to be able to export Artboards to very precise image sizes (pixels). When I use PS 19.1.6 (macOS 10.14.3) and use Export As, then in the Size All section I can enter/use sizes like 0.6256 (e.g. Size: 0.6256). That enables me to get the exported image to the size I want.

In PS 20 (macOS 10.14.3) when I do this and come to export the size is ALWAYS rounded up to 2 decimal places, e.g. 0.63. That this happens means I cannot get the exact size images I need to be exported and it is driving me crazy as it means I have to use PS 19.1.6 for my work, not good when paying a lot for a subscription. 

Under PS > Preferences > Units & Rulers I have settings:
Rulers: Pixels
Type: Points

FYI I had a long chat session with a support representative who said this was a known issue and it was pretty well impossible to fix because of the new way Photoshop 20 was working under the hood. I could not believe it, frankly, that such a retrograde step was taken.

Hope the above helps and that there is a fix or workaround for PS 20.

Hi Tom, Is a fix for this coming any time soon in PS20? I ask because I saw reports recently that Adobe will soon be stopping people using older versions. If because of that I am forced to stop using PS19 and cannot use PS20 because of the retrograde functionality above, then I'm afraid I would have no choice but to look elsewhere....

There are twice as many people who care about this now! Need that decimal precision back, please. And while you're at it, can we have more characters for the "suffix" option? I don't think it used to be limited. But if you have to, how about 30ish?

Tom, there is complete radio silence on this. It is still a bug in 20.0.5. When will it be fixed?
