      I’m exporting my data in NAD83 CA Zone 5, US Survey 5, and adding the LatLong to the export file, but it comes out in DMS. Is there a way to change it to Decimal Dregrees? Thanks for your help.

      What a great question!

      Choose Tools | Program Settings and go to the Units tab. Set the Angles to Degrees instead of DMS, choose OK and re-export the file. Once you have the export that you need, change the setting back to DMS.

      I will add a suggestion to our suggestion database to provide a setting for this in the export settings. Thanks for the question!

      Thanks, Mark, for your help. It worked beautifully. Yes, it would be great to have it in the export settings. I appreciate your input.

      The settings change works well to export into DD. However, it would be nice to be able to format the Lat/Lon coordinates to have the ‘N’ & ‘W’ in front instead of at the end.
