Rulers in inches
« on: September 22, 2011, 06:15:30 am »
Is there anyway to set the rulers to display in inches? They only display in points for me. Also, I've tried to adjust things from points to inches in Preferences and when I go to save, it asks me to save a file off. What is this file for? Shouldn't the program automatically remember my preferences on my computer?

setting things in the preferences allows you to make changes for future documents (and for some settings which do not depend on the specific document currently open).

in order to change the unit used by the current document you have to change the "document setup" or -- in a very simple way -- choose "inches" in the unit selector in the bottom left corner of the scribus window.
