Do you mean R14 from 1997, or do you mean version 2014?

If you switch to a different dimension style, does it still give you the seemingly incorrect data?

What do you get when you use the DIST command? (Note that this will depend on your UNITS settings.)

Look at the settings in your DimStyle.

Not in Autocad, 😉 especially not in R14.

If you're talking about the text content in Dimension objects, you could get 15" to come out reading as 1' [or 12", depending on certain settings] as the result of a DIMLFAC setting of 0.8, however that would not make the same  3" difference in all  Dimensions, but the difference would be proportional to the measured length.  You could have 15" come out reading as 1' as the result of a DIMRND setting of 12, but again, that would round everything  to the nearest foot, so the difference would not be the same for all Dimensions.  It might help if you can post a drawing file including some Dimensions that read incorrectly.

 

If you're talking about not a Dimension object, but just the reported size from a DIST command or in the Coordinates display as you move the cursor around within a drawing or editing command, I don't have any idea what could cause that, but consider the suggestion at the end of @qnologi's linked topic -- reset AutoCAD and see whether that fixes it.

Show us, post your DWG file that has this problem that you drew, point to it so we don't have to go hunting.

Is Autocad (R14) compatible with new OS, e.g., Windows 10?

@Anonymous No one in 1997 ever planned for Windows10 20-years later LOL
