Inch symbol in dimensions

Post by ethatch » Tue Dec 18, 2018 12:06 am

How do I get the inch symbol (") to appear behind the dimensions in my drawing?

I'm using windows 10

After selecting a dimension you can edit specific properties in the Property Editor.
When you change the Label from Auto to <>" you will get the desired result.

The <> is a placeholder and it will be replaced by the value of the measured dimension (in this example by 60,37)
Before and after the placeholder you can place any text you want.
