Showing Dimensions in feet-inches-sixteenths (FIS) Format

Hello,

 

I have been trying to show dimensions for wall and truss shop drawings in

, but am unsure how to achieve this.

 

Any ideas?

 

Images for this format are attached.

 

Thanks!

Not with dimensions but with a detail line based family.

@ToanDN , This is an excellent solution to applying F.I.S. dimensions, however I'm noticing there are limitations with this workaround. When I'm describing lengths greater than 6" in length, the "I" parameter assumes a negative integer value; ie. 2'-7" is processed as 3 feet and negative 5 inches.

 

Do you have an idea of how I can mitigate this?

Make this change. 

Those brackets in the formula for S aren't needed.  I added them for clarity and forgot to take them out.
