    Default Eliminate Inch Mark in Dimensions

    Summary: The ability to eliminate or override the inch mark in dimensions when using architectural units by adding an option to the dimension style.

    Description: I wish there was a way to override or eliminate the inch mark in dimensions when using architectural units.

    How Used: A standard in the Steel Detailing Industry is to not have inch marks in dimensions. This would eliminate the need for overiding the dimension text.

    perhaps move into the 21st century world with the metric system ?? drafting is SO much easier with cm/mm than inches...

    instead of 'Architectural' (more accurately called 'Imperial') units, you could also try using AutoCAD's Fractional Inches or Decimal Inches, I guess -- that way, you would retain the unit scale, but allow more flexibility with display of, and entering of numeric values.

    <troll_mode=ON> sheesh, how do you metric folks manage to stay awake when the only conversion you do means sliding the decimal point around? _Real_ drafters use chains, pecks, and furlongs and pick their teeth with a Leroy scriber. <troll_mod=OFF>

    sorry, I didn't mean to be rood.

    I often don't know what to do when I come across a link, a chain, a rod, or a perch on some antique survey drawings or titles -- more often than not, it's not immediately apparent what units were being used.
