Scale Bar Fractions

Is there anyway to get fraction labels in the scale bar instead of decimal labels?

Mapping Center Answer:

Unfortunately there is nothing that will automatically subsitute fractions for decimal place labels.  Right-clicking and converting the scale bar to graphics and then manually susbstituting the fractions is the one option I have used when not completely happy with the formatting of a scale bar.

Mr. Cartographer: Is ESRI working on this? All of us out there hope so.
