I am dimensioning in feet and inches. Normally work in metric units.
This job requires dimension to read inches " only and not feet '

eg. 1' 5 1/2"  should read  17 1/2"

Is there a way i can do that in dimension properties.
Your assistance much appreciated.

Changing the settings in Space Options and Dimension Properties something similar to the attachments should work for you.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

If "Options / Space Units" is already set to Architectural, then you only need to change the "Format" in Dimensions to "Fractional"; maybe set up a Preset style for this in Dimensions. If Alternate Dimensions are available, maybe set up a Preset with both types of dimensions. Use "\P" (backslash, capital P) in the Suffix field to stack 'em.
