Set # of sig figs on schematic annotation

Sometimes the number of significant figures on schematic annotations (node voltages, for example) is very high and it becomes difficult to read. To fix this, type the following into the icfb window:

envSetVal("auCore.misc" "labelDigits" 'int 5)

Change the number 5 to your desired number of sig figs. To make this change permanent, add the line to your ~/.cdsenv file.
