Dimensioning with inches (without converting to feet)

I need to dimension my drawings in just inches (without converting to feet). I tried choosing each of the templates listed as inches, but whenever I dimension it still converts my dimension to feet. For example, I can’t seem to get it to say 18" it always converts to 1’ 6".

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

in Window-> Model Info-> Units

switch the format from architectural to fractional

Thanks so much Jeff! I’ve been poking around for over an hour trying to figure that out.

no problem…
also, fwiw, the preferences you choose in Model Info are preferences for a particular file… so, you can make changes in there then save as your custom template… that way, all models will behave the same way if need be.

Thanks again. That’s very helpful.
