Dim text - Feet/ Inches to Inches only

586 Views, 5 Replies

I am trying to change the way the Dimension Text reads from Feet and Inches (ex. 6'-5") to read only in Inches (ex: 77").

I need to do this in order to help eliminate field errors in reading the incorrect number of feet.

Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Change UNITS and/or Dimension Units to decimal, add the
symbol " for DIMPOST variable.

You may want to investigate fractional units too. That way 5'-7 5/8" come
out as 67 5/8" instead of 67.63.

Can you explain what menu/command I need to go to do this?

UNITS and DIMSTYLE commands, just type them at the command
line. Tap the Help buttons on the pop-ups for explanations.
