I would like to have a different unit system for my drawings than what I use when I am designing.   In my drawings I would like to have architectural units (ft-in fractions) in my drawings, but when I am designing I want to use straight inches with decimals.   It seems that I only know how to change the unit system for my entire work environment.  Is there a way to change the unit system for file types (drawing, part, assembly, etc.)?
