# Is there a way to have dimension shown in fractions?

I can enter dimensions in fractions but then can only see dimensions ofr objects in decimals. I live in the US and I'm using blender to create build plans. For the plans to be useful to people in the trades dimensions need to be shown in fractions.

• AFAIK only thousandths are possible in UI eg 5" 375thou for five and three eighths inches. Surely this is a simple by sight conversion. (even if shown as a decimal) I imagine if not able to convert decimals to fractions renders the plans as a blender file un-useful, the user may also have difficulty with using blender itself., If you are rendering the plans for distribution, then convert output of dimensions to required units, fractions Jun 15 '19 at 9:41
