Acceptable input formats

2006 mechanical user. When I open a new drawing I cannot input dimensions with any apostrophes or quote marks to signify feet or inches. It doesnt recognize that as an acceptable input. How can I change it?

 

I have used other peoples cad files where I am able to insert dimensions in multiple formats. For example, for 1 foot 3 inches I could enter [1], [5], [Enter] or [1], [5], ["]. or [1], ['], [SPACE], [3], [Enter].  Where can I change this?

This place is for plain Autocad.

Looks like your drawing units is not setting for Architectural, it's in Decimal, or Engineering.....

Type in UNITS and change it.

Wow. Thanks. I can't believe it was that easy.
