Units & Rulers

The Units & Rulers panel is the fifth panel in the Preferences dialog box; hence, you reach the panel by pressing Ctrl+5. Shown in Figure 2-19, this panel offers options that enable you to change the predominant system of measurement used throughout the program.

Tip Whenever the rulers are visible, the Units & Rulers panel is only a double click away. Choose View Show Rulers (Ctrl+R) to see the rulers on screen and then 1 double click either the horizontal or vertical ruler.

Figure 2-19: Go to the Units & Rulers panel to change the column and pica settings; to set the unit of measurement, right-click the ruler to display a pop-up menu of choices. I prefer to use Pixels as opposed to Inches.
