you can of course select EXCELLON_24 and GERBER_RSX274_24 working with 4 digits precision.
We forgot to put this to Update documentation, sorry for this!
In version 7.1.2 we switched to 5 digit precision for EXCELLON and
GERBER_RSX274 due to repeated customer request. HTH.

OK, tested, this setting generates "old" type of drill data.
