I guess millimeters is the default unit in the drawing mode, and I too am annoyed with this. Instead on right clicking on the dimension and going to its properties, just click on the dimension, on the top of the screen, you'll see a drop down menu that says NUM.DIMM. Simply change that to NUM.DINC.

Clicking on a dim and changing from NUM.DIMM TO NUM,DIMM every time takes times.(Its fine with few dimensions in dwg).


Suggest you to complete entire drg and have aFIND on dimensions, select all fromFIND window,then follow step as said by zoltrix2k.

Or u can change the iso.xml (drafting standard) to work in inch
