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.

Tim-
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....
