Re: DIA Dimensioning

You can't  "dimension" anything in the sense of an engineering drawing (arrows between witness lines and numbers describing length, etc.) except letter by letter and line by line - no automation.

If you mean the rulers, and margin setting, no fractions.

The system is at its heart in centimeters.  No fraction are necessary with metric systems.

Being that Dia is open source you could try and code the fractions into Dia yourself.
