I would like to model something (shop floor plan) using feet & inches. I would like to have 12 small units in one large one in the grid. At present the dimension is 21’ rather than 1’-9". It seems that 6 is behaving differently than 5. I’m adapting, but some of the changes are frustrating.


Your Grid controls are in Tools - Options - Grid
and your Units controls are in Tools - Options - Units

To enter length in feet and inches you type it like this: 3’6-5/8
which is 3 feet 6 inches and 5/8 of an inch.

’ is apostrophe under the quotation marks
– is minus/dash sign under underscore
