drawing to be fractional? I get tired of placing dimensions in

Should be in your drawing options. In WF, hold the right mouse button down and go to properties. This will bring up a window in which you click "drawing options."

Scroll through the options until you find the one you want. This will allow you to change all of the dimensions to fractions.
