Description

The ScaleBar object should have the ability for the precision/rounding preferences to be set, instead of using N-number of decimals with no control.

Not only does this make the ScaleBar look messy and unprofessional, it implies a level of precision that likely is not met with the data and how the map has been prepared.

There should be a user-facing option to change the precision/rounding to whatever number of digits/places desired.

I've attached a screenshot of what this ScaleBar text looks like on my layout when using miles as the unit.
