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.

    $\begingroup$ 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 $\endgroup$

I'm afraid it's not possible at the moment to have something like 5 3/8". Request this feature or try to find a Python script. And it's possible to import, with an app, .obj files to AutoCad and do the measuring there with fractions supported. Blender's primary goal is not architecture/housing.
