Hi,
I can find no way to set the program to display units only in inches. I always get unit display in feet & inches...

File > Document setup    only gives info related to print.

I want the Dimensions & tape measure to display in inches only...

advice?
Thanks very much, 
Kent

1. Go to the "Window" menu and choose "Model Info". A dialog will popup
2. In the Listbox to the left choose "Units".
3. Change the "Format" to whatever you like.

To get the model to display dimensions of only inches, here's a solution in three easy steps. 

1. Go to the "Window" menu and choose "Model Info". 
2. In the Listbox to the left choose "Units".
3. Chose "Fractional" from the drop down menu. 

That's it! Any dimensions you draw will appear in inches according to the precision you define.
