English fractions line drawing

I am trying to draw lines via the keyboard. I want to enter fractions such as 5 3/4". Other posts have said to just type it it, but when I use the space key, it cancels out my line. How do you guys get the fractional distances in lines?

You are not alone. The issue is being addressed.

Okay, so I’m not crazy then, thanks!

Good to know! Thank you.
