Dimensions do not show units after the number

I just started using Autocad LT 2004.  It seem unusual that when a dimension is drawn there is no reference to the unit such as inch or feet?  Any ideas why?

Thanks

James

Not using Architectural as your UNITS perhaps?

Pay no attention to the post whore :smileywink:  j/k Charles

 

If you create a dimstyle with architectural units it will have the feet and inch marks.

 

If you want fractional or decimal units you can achieve the marks by entering them in the SUFFIX field in the dimstyle setup.
