AttributeReference TextString MTextAttribute

I am using MTextAttributes to store imperial lengths in the drawing, feet inches and fractions (stacked).  When I read back the TextString property which, is the MtextAttribute.Contents parsed, I am having problems because the parser does not add a space between the inch and the fraction.  So, is there any setting that could be used to tell the parser to add the space between the inch and the fraction?  I will really appreciate any help.

hi, check setting for systemvariable UNITMODE which "controls the display format for units", if it's 1, set to 0. (default is 0 though, worth a try, maybe?) felix
