i have a string of dimensions that do not add up to the total length dimension string. there is a dimension in the multi-string that is 1/256" off. i have my rounding set to the 1/256" so this way i get a true dimension. i would like to know if there is a fix for this? not necessarily a work-around. i am attaching a revit file that shows this issue.

Your dimensions are only approximate.  Even though you have set the dim rounding to the finest level, it calculates it to the nearest 255/256.  When I take your file and dim it in millimeters, it also does not tally, but when I set the accuracy to 2 decimal places, the dimensions add up.
