Entering linear measurements in feet AND inches

I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 to edit linear features.  In the Distance dialog box, I need to enter measurements in feet and inches and cannot find a way to do this without converting the data myself.  I'd rather not do this since there are many measurements I'd need to convert.  I've tried the following methods of entering 15 feet, 10 inches into the dialog:

15 ft 10 in
15 ft. 10 in.
15 ft + 10 in
15' 10"
15 feet 10 inches
15ft 10in

And none of those seem to work.  I am working in a data frame with a projected coordinate system, so that's one less thing I need to worry about.  Can someone give me the right answer?
