Archicad 27 - Tracker Input glitch using forward slash while in Fractional Inch input


I usually set my units to Fractional Inches. When I try to move an element a fraction of an inch using the forward slash (i.e. 3/4) the input gets an undesired entry upon hitting the forward slash ("/"). This didn't happen in AC26. The glitch also happens on both Windows and macOS. To get the screenshot to show 3/4, I had to type /4 and then move cursor back to front and type the 3. It works and moves it 3/4", but I hate that solution. I can also use decimal (i.e. .75) but that isn't user friendly when inputting other fractions in decimal format. I hope this is an easy fix.

IIRC,  "Freedom unit" makes reference to "Freedom Fries" which was the name one of the USA parties wanted to use for "French Fries" because the french were against the war in Irak…

So USA units vs Metric
