It does not appear that you can enter coordinates using the ft (') symbol such as 5',6' anywhere except in the Coordinate Data boxes in the Status Bar. There you can enter even coordinates like 5' 6",6' 3" with no problem. But not in the Command line, the Dynamic Input Display or the Inspector Bar.

Apparently, you can if you use the "-" as in "5'-6" since the spacebar acts as enter key.

Thanks Rob. I would have never guessed. I know there are other bug issues with trying to enter architectural type ft and in. distances in the Command Line such as 6'8". And it must be entered with hyphens in the dynamic input to work, 6'-8".  Hopefully these issues will be remedied, and it sounds like they will be.

Confrimed - that has been fixed in the M1 beta (for Pro so far)
