Metric drawing with metric and imperial annotations

I am working with a drawing in metric and using the report scale factor utility (Carlson) to annotate distances in both metric and imperial. 

As an example, the distance annotation on a line of 2.740m is shown as: 2.740m [8.990ft]

Without changing the AutoCAD drawing units, is there a way to set-up the software to annotate the imperial annotation in feet and inches (as opposed to decimal) such that for example [8.990ft] would read [8' 11 7/8"] 

Thank you,
