I am using Solidworks 2003, SP 2.0. I know this happens with earlier Solidworks versions as well:
When you dimension with feet and inches, you can get a dash, like:12'-8"
but, when you dimension something in just inches, like "one and three sixteenths inches", it looks like this:1 3/16"
which if you are using a non-fixed width font, looks a whole lot like 13/16" instead of 1-3/16", like I'd like it to look like.
Does anyone have a suggestion for how I can make this so that there will be no potential errors with someone reading my print when dimensioning in fractional inches?
