Thanks for the reply.
I can create the dual dimension you have but I need to satisfy our customers needs
by replacing the (in) with (") suffix.
I'm not sure if that can be done. May be using a macro might do what you looking for.
Just a little information, maybe enough to convince your customer to see it your way.
Assumes your title block has a note such as "UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED: ALL DIMENSIONS ARE IN INCHES OR CUSTOMARY ENGLISH UNITS"
An imperial dimensioned drawing requires no delineation for inches.
Conversely, a metric dimensioned drawing requires no delineation for millimeters.
For dual dimension drawings, there are requirements as follows:
Imperial Primary - Inch (Dimension display as usual.)
Metric Secondary - MM (Displayed in square brackets  with mm designation.)
Example: (Metric Primary)
Therefore, if your CAD system is capable of:
...your customer should be happy.
Otherwise, you are in for a lot of manual entries.
EDIT: The double quotes are customarily used whn specifying:
Feet & Inches: 5'-10"
Degrees: 25° 45' 10" (Degrees, minutes & seconds)
Is this an archetectual application?
