As a longtime AutoCAD user, I'm used to the idea that AutoCAD is unitless. That is, you can assign any arbitrary value to a unit you wish. Of course inches, feet, mm, and meters are most common, but I often get .dwg files where the unit is the micrometer (for small scale photomasks). Anyway, I am trying to do a landscape site plan in BricsCAD v17 and want the unit to be the foot. I also want to be able to create dimensions in feet and inches (ex: 19'-6") along with decimal feet (ex: 19.50'). This is because structures like barn, sidewalks, etc. are most comfortably (for me, anyway) drawn in feet and inches and surveying is done in decimal feet. I'd like to know how to set BricsCAD up to support entry in both decimal feet and feet and inches at the same time, and to allow me to set up dimension styles for both. Thank you.
