    Different Drawing Dimension Styles

    Jacob Steinmetz

      Just out of curiosity- if I have a drawing, and am dimensioning all just basic lengths/holes, is there a way to make some of the dimensions as decimals and others as fractions? Sometimes it seems easier for guys on the floor if I say 1.25" instead of 1 1/4", but also 11/16" instead of .6875".

       

      I've always just gone Tools > Options > Doc Properties > Units > Fractions/Decimals, but haven't seen a way to change it outside of that... On the left Dimension pop-up, I tried switching the Tolerance/Precision to be (for example) .1234 instead of .12 (Document), but that did not work.. Also overriding value did not work either.

       

      Thanks for any help!
