Am generating a wall schedule and including wall thickness. It appears that value in feet/inches/decimals is controlled by calculation units-length units in project preferences. However, only decimal equivalents are available in that dialogue box. Any way to get inches. Decimal equivalents of inches aren't going to be greeted with much enthusiasm by contractors.

Thanks.

I am not seeing this, the dimension is controlled by Project Preferences > Dimensions > Linear Dimensions (leftmost button). Maybe if you post your Interactive Schedule settings someone can spot the problem.

Nope, that's not it either. Have linear dimensions set to feet and fractional inches and I still get 7.25" in the wall thickness column only. All other values in the schedule are in the appropriate feet and inch values.
Have an email in to GS support....will see what they have to say.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but i did not find any other thread with this issue. Did you find a way to get this done correctly? I am having the same issue as well with the door schedule coming up in decimals and not in fractions. Its fine when its quarters but the 1/8ths will be an issue.

It seems length (and perimeter), area and volume are controlled by the calculation units.
Width and height seem to be controlled by the dimension settings - I would have thought all schedule figures should be controlled by calculation units.
I have never noticed as I have everything set to metric millimetres.
