# I only want inches, not feet and inches...

I use Architectural units; how do I get only inches when I am drawing?
Feet and inches just make me do more work...

You might try 'Fractional (Stacked)' with the suffix as ".

What do you mean by "get"?

DIMLUNIT Type: Integer Saved in: Drawing Initial value: 2 Sets units for all dimension types except Angular.
1 Scientific
2 Decimal
3 Engineering
4 Architectural (always displayed stacked)
5 Fractional (always displayed stacked)
6 Microsoft Windows Desktop (decimal format using Control Panel settings for decimal separator and number grouping symbols)
Just type DIMLUNIT and enter 5. You'll get regular inches. EX: DIMLUNIT set to 4 = 4'-3 3/8" DIMLUNIT set to 5 = 51 3/8" DIMLUNIT set to 2 = 51.375"

Yes, but I think that it does not show the " (inches) symbol.

(Ehem) This sounds too easy...
Scale your drawing (UP) by 12 and set units to decimal. Each unit will be 1" instead of 1'.

Uh, no. Architectural units are already inches. ___

It does if you tell it to (ddim / notation / suffix). ___

That is what my original message was about (:-)

Like I said, the answer depends on what is meant by "get". Everyone's guessing.....

Awesome...thanks a million. I now know how to limit the expression to just inches AND choose whether or not to have the inches symbol. I am very grateful...
