    Default Remove inch symbol from dimensions

    Is there a way to dimension a drawing with the Primary Units set to "Architectural" and not have it put on the inch symbol? Example 1'-2" would show up looking like 1'-2 automatically without doing a text override.

    If this is something you need to do on a regular basis and you are using an shx font file you can easily copy the current shx font file and modify it to have the " mark show nothing. You can then specify this font file for use with your dimension style. The whole task shouldn't take more than an hour or 2....

    Hope that helps!
