I don't need that much precision most the time and I prefer, for example, to see 100,100 for x,y or width,height values rather than 100.224,100.082.

You can try to configure Inkscape for saving no decimals whatsoever.

  1. File > Inkscape Preferences > SVG Output
  2. Numeric precision > set to 0

Sorry, the question was a bit ambiguous. I am referring specifically to the main user interface when editing an image. I've edited the question to make it more clear. – klenwell Mar 10 '12 at 3:12
No, that's not possible, sorry. You can file it to the bug tracker as a feature request. But if this is about getting pixel crisp images, I recommend the Pixelsnap extension available since 0.48 or so. It adjusts selected objects in a way that they align to pixel grid. – prokoudine Mar 10 '12 at 7:02
Your answer was what I was looking for as I want to stop inscape from giving me values with decimals in SVG. With Numeric precision set to 3 I get close enough to what I want but it will still give me things like 32.5 when I would really just like 32. – Chris Magnuson Jan 17 at 3:29

There appears to be no option currently available to do this. As prokoudine suggested, I have opened a feature request. It can be tracked here:
