I recelty found out how to place a point and attach a leader to that point and have the x,y coordinates displayed but they read out as feet’.decimals when I want it to read as feet’-inches" is there anyway to do this? I am hoping for a feature similar to autoCAD where you can drag your mouse to a point and the software provides you with the x,y coordinaates and also updates the coordinates automatically when you move the point.
I think you are talking about two different things.
If you go to Options>Units>Model under the “Distance display” section you can set it to “Fractional”.
Doing this you will be able to see your values with fractions in the status bar any time a command is requiring you to input a coordinate/point:
Also, you can properly set up the style of your annotation to display length units in fractions:
(… if you edit the control points of the leader you can change the location relative to its origin…)
this ^ is the property of a single annotation object, but you can set up similarly the global annotation style of your .3dm file.
