Ability to show slab drainage slope values as rise over run


I typically want to display slope values as a rise over run (e.g. 1:80) rather than a percentage (e.g. 1.25%).

I agree — this should be a user option per Slab object, and not as a single setting for the entire file as there are times when we need to have both % slope and rise/run called out on the same drawing.

For example, when dealing with accessibility compliance in the U.S. (clear landing in front of a door) we typically write the slope as 2% MAX.

But when are dealing with the slope of a ramp or walkway, we typically call it out as rise / run like 1:12 or 1:20.
