This is called a "Dimension Style". By default SE is delivered with
Mechanical, not Arch styles. Go to "Format" then "Styles" and then choose
Dimension Style. Edit the dimension style that is already closest to yours
(ANSI I suppose) and make these changes. Save your file. You will want to
make the change in your normal.par "template" file, which is the file that
all others will be generated from. You will probably want to change units
also (file > properties > units) if you work in Ft/In a lot.
