Many SketchUp users engage in dimensioning practices commonly employed in the U.S. Typically a linear dimension is written out with a dash separating feet and inches, thus: 12’-4" or 156’-8 1/2" would accurately represent an example of dimensional transcription. Unfortunately, with SketchUp the user must necessarily edit and add in the dash in order to properly represent the linear dimension.
I have made this observation before but no action was taken, so I am again making a formal request that the next iteration of SketchUp allows for the dash insertion as an automatic feature of standard feet-inch dimensioning. The inclusion of this simple feature will be an advantageous time saver for those of us who use the standard American version of dimensioning in SketchUp!
