# Entering and displaying feet and decimal inches?

Hi
V5
units display
Having chosen large object feet template (a default template from rhino)
In units I see three options
decimal
fractional
feet and inches

first gives 1.00
second gives 1- 1/4
third gives 1’ 1-1/4"

What do I need to select to display as 3ft 2.125 inch or 3’ 2.125" ?

else I will have to use fractional and see 3’ 2-1/8"

A feet and decimal inch surely should be an option ?

How do I enter such values in the command line when creating a dimension of that length 3ft 2 1/8 inches ?
To also know how to enter 3ft 2 1/8inch would also be useful as sometimes my site visits have imperial on them instead of decimal.

Also I open a plan from a vector prog that was drawn in units of inches at a scale of 1/100, so 1" on plan is 100" in reality.
So as to open it at full size, I choose 1 unit = 100 Rhino units
I measure a distance on it shown as 9ft 9inch and get rhino displaying as 117’ -0"

yet I have selected these settings in Rhino

117 inches would be correct, though I wanted it shown as 9ft 9inch or 9’ 9" but not 117’

Cheers

Steve

In your image Rhino is set to work in Feet which is determined by the setting in Units. So one unit in the imported geometry is one foot = 12 inches in Rhino… The other setting is for how dimensions are displayed.
