Hi John,

there's no dumb questions, maybe badly researched ones, and you
definitely don't have the habit of posting the latter, so: Good

It all boils down to this line in gnuradio/gr-

      d_text_box[i]->setText(QString("%1 %2").arg(f, 4, ' ').\

in which the current value `f` is displayed with four digits after the
decimal dot.

I'd agree this is probably not what's desirable in any application.

Now, this can be changed; for example, we could add a way to set the
number of digits variably instead of to 4. However, that'll be a source
code and API change, so it'll require recompilation of GNU Radio and
relinking of everything that use gr-qtgui. Does that help you?

Best regards,
