CATIA Drawing Text sizes in Inches?

In the CATIA drafting, is there any way to display the text heights in decimal inch with more that 1 decimal place? This works fine for mm units, but is confusing with decimal inch.

I can change the Paper Unit setting to mm to toggle it, but i need 0.001 decimal display to make sense of the text heights in Inch.

If you R-Click on the 'Text Properties' toolbar's text-size window, the menu that pops up has some options at the bottom for tweaking the display.

See attached for illustration.

This is exactly what I needed. Thanks!

As a side note, I also figured out that if you set the "Allowed Text Fonts" in the drafting standards XML, the pull down for fonts will be limited to those you specify. No more random fonts in new drawings!
