Lightroom: Provide more precision for parameters/values

Entering parameter values in the interface of Lightroom to a precision greater than the interface for Lightroom allows, when the algorithms that process the images are infinitely capable of accepting and processing such parameter values of the precision provided for those parameters.

How is this done?

tl;dr: Parameter accepted by Lightroom is an integer, or decimal number with one digit after the decimal place. Greater precision is required by users of Lightroom, and the algorithms can do it. Lightroom doesn't allow this. We need this. Make it happen.

Yes, you can, at this moment, do keyboard data entry. again:

Lightroom doesn't allow any increased level of precision. We need this. Make it happen.
You may tell me that that is what photoshop is for, if you give me a moment, i'll tell you why Lightroom should be able to do that.

What kind of adjustments are you finding need greater precision?

Every adjustment that is capable of it. Keyboard data entry is already rounded to the nearest degree of precision that you currently allow an artist to make use of, regardless of what the algorithm allows or their need.

All of them.

Thanks.

just a side question: when posting an "idea", in the "topics" section, of what's called "community", it tells me automagically that "I LIKE THIS IDEA" (wasn't yelling there, it just happens to be in all caps.) is anyone able to submit an idea which they dont like? i happen to like the idea that i have presented, though if anyone whishes to reframe what i have said in a way that is more technically accurate, do so.

This forum allows other people to 'like your idea' as well.

That said, if you can explain WHY you need greater precision, it will give more weight to your request. For example, do you have a photo that shows a need for a Highlights setting of 10.5, where 10 or 11 won't do the job equally well?
