How can we improve MicroSurvey CAD, inCAD, or embeddedCAD?

Create a method for displaying fractional dimensions

Canadian Surveyor, working primarily in metric. I'd like to be able to set up a "Distance Style" to display smart labels in architectural units, as in, feet and fractional inches. I can easily make a plot with scaled dimensions, but getting these to display correctly with fractions for a home builder is not so easy or convenient. I'd like to be able to easily do this without having to make a separate file, and completely changing the job configuration to do so.

    Today's example, which happens from time to time, is that I had to resolve some dismensions for a builder, and he wants a drawing (sketch) from me that illustrates the resolved distances. This would be so easy if I could simply switch the distance style, label the building, then print and send the sketch.
