How do I add a dimension so that it shows both metric and imperial, with metric first, but has the appropriate units after each. Ie. 1.0mm (0.039 in.)?

Thanks

Hi Kevin

I thought you want to show them in your drawing, actually, Inventor support to do that from Inventor 2011 at least. please see below link, what you need to do is to set different units for Primary units and alternate Units in drawing style editor.
