input units: Feet to inches

Hi all, When drawing using imperial units in Revit, it of course interprets values you input as feet until you press " to let it know you mean inches. As I am constantly going between Revit and AutoCAD, which does the opposite, I keep missing the " out of habit and wasting time repeating everything. My question is, is there a way to change the input from feet to inches so I can move more seamlessly between the two programs? Thanks, Matt S

After you configure the units to inches, you won't need to type the quote " for inches. Actually, when you are using feet and inches, you can type 8 6 and that means 8'-6".
