Fraction dimension

Fraction dimension

Hello all,

I recently switched company's and in doing so I am learning Creo now.  I have used Inventor for many years before this.  I like a lot about the software and still have a few frustrations with the limitations that it has as well from what I am use to.  Which brings me to my question is there a way to set up the drawing template or a setting in the software so that my start our as fraction dimensions rather than decimal dimensions?  We use fractions for everything but machined parts.  So if gets a little frustrating to have to remember to highlight all the dimensions and turn them into fractions after I am done.  Thank you for the help.

You may also want to create a couple of mapkeys to change the modeling and drawing settings.

If you can't do a mapkey, try different config.pro files with a Creo launch script that switches between the 2 config options.
