See page size in inches, not points

Post by Adrenoreceptor »

Can I change this somewhere? The help feature isn't intuitive enough to know this is what I'm asking by "view page size".

When you hover your cursor at the bottom left of the window, it tells you page size. I dont do page sizes in points. Where did the inches and architectural page sizes go?

I printed 3 pages using pdfXchange light and 2 out of three are only showing the size in points.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks all.

For some reason I dont get notifications of replies, so it took me a while to check back...been crazy busy.

Yes, this answered my question. I need to remember to try right-clicking everywhere! I forget that sometimes.

Not sure if they are connected, but after right clicking and setting to inches, then going to preferences to go that route, it was set at inches. They may be one and the same.

I'm not sure where PHK was leading me, but I appreciate the effort.

HI Adrenoreceptor,

these are indeed all different paths to the same setting.

What PHK was telling you is that if you enable the Ruler, the a right click on the ruler offers quicker access to where you can choose the units:

I hope that helps.
