How can I have a space between the inch and diagonal stacked fraction without modifying the dimension text?
Set up a custom unit label in your dimension style so that there is a space before the " mark.

Thanks Rod, but that will add a space after the fraction. I need the space between the inch number and fraction (between 10 and 3/8).
Thanks, Andrew. Unfortunately, I can't use another font because this is the DOT standard font. Do you think I can modify this font and make it work?
If you customize any font (TTF, RSC or SHX) you will need to distribute that font file to anyone else who will use your drawing. I'm also unsure how to modify a TTF font, but I'm sure that information is out on the internet.

There are editors available (e.g. Fontographer) to create or modify a TTF font library.

That's the rub. Most users are perfectly content with the font (e.g. Arial) that they use today. Instructing them to use another font — similar but with a tiny space before a fraction — will be difficult.

In the language of font design, that's termed kerning.

Thanks, Jon. I was hoping there would be a simpler solution for it.
