Setting fractions as default for units/tolerances

First I'm using Windows 10 and TurboCAD 2016 Deluxe 64- bit version 23.1 built 39.4

Almost all of my drawings are for custom woodturnings so fractions work best.  Therefore I would like to set my default for units/tolerances to fractions.  It's quite annoying to have to keep changing it all the time.  When I open up a new drawing with wizard I always select "Fractions" but when I start putting in the dimensions it is always in decimals.

Any ideas on how to make fractions my default setting for dimensions?

Open a new drawing, do the change you want, save it as a *.tct in the Templatefolder, and later use that Template when open a new drawing.

Keep in mind that you will likely have to be in Administrator mode to save a new Template if you accepted the default folder location on your boot drive when you installed the program.
