I need values of length in my BOM in fractions.
presently its showing in decimals. I tried changing units to fractions in document properties, but its changing the values on my drawing and not reflecting on BOM.
is it possible to edit it as a text so the value will not be altered ?
Yes it can be done but it will break the link and i don't want to break the link.
So you want the length in fractions like 4 3/4", but still linked?
I had to link the column to a custom property LENGTH,
which was linked to a dimension,
which was set to fractions as an override.Though I suppose if your dimensions were already in fractions the override would be unnecessary.
If you didn't want the property linked directly to the dimension for whatever reason, I have seen some people link it to dimension in a sketch that references global variables instead.
