The stake objects for the DTM allows users to choose which units to display, this functionality should be added to the elevation benchmark tool. (And Record Formats & Data Tags) Attached is a screenshot or of the current elevation benchmark, and a portion of the Stake Object showing the ability to choose units.
We love using Elevation Benchmark objects, especially since they can magically display the correct heights (elevations) of building elements in elevation and section viewports – yay for intelligent BIM annotations! However, they'd be even more useful if we could override the document units for them just like we can for stake objects (see attached screen shots).
Does anyone know how to make elevation benchmarks display in viewport annotations in decimal feet while having the drawing units set to feet & inches? A workaround seems to be converting the drawing units to decimal feet and then shifting the benchmarks horizontally by a pixel (shift + left arrow), then converting the drawing back to feet & inches for dimensioning the rest of the building. The benchmarks appear to stay in decimal feet in the annotations while the dimensions on the rest of the file switch back to feet & inches, but if you move or edit the benchmark then it will convert back to feet & inches, forcing you to repeat the unit switch process over again to get the benchmark back to decimal feet.
