q: about rulers

Postby anechoic » Wed Apr 09, 2008 8:16 pm

is there a way to change the ruler from decimal inches to standard inches?
in other words: I want to see 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 etc on the actual ruler
and not 1/10's

I don't think you can do that, but I'll move your topic to the general help section, since non-mac folks can answer you as well and this way more people will see your message

Notice the bottom left how it reads inches and you can select a guide and it will show you the measurement from the first guide.
Kind of a hard way to go about it but what do you do. :)
This is a good way to see your 1/4 inch measurements though.Just use the guides.

If you were to click on the guide before the last one the bottom would read 0.75, the next guide would read 0.50 and the next one would read 0.25 - the very first one would read 0.00.
This is about the only way to really be able to read the ruler in 1/4 inch sections.That i know of any ways.
