what is the keyboard shortcut to stack numbers as a fraction when you are overriding a dimensions value in the modify properties bar?

Use DDEDIT on a pre-existing dimension.

You can use the ED command to modify the text of a dimension. Once in the editor, highlight over the "X/Y" formatted value, right click the mouse, and select "Stack" off of the context menu. Also note that the format "X#Y" autostacks to a diagonal fraction while the format "X^Y" autostacks to a horizontal fraction.

If you're using Properties to edit your dimension, just add  \S  ;       EXEMPLE: 48\S1/2;" will give you this 48½"
