    You didn't say which version of illustrator, but I don't think you can change the ruler ticks in the way you desire in any version.

    However you could turn the grid on, and change those measurements in the preferences>guides and grids pallet.

    Rob,

    The Ruler designations are set by the zoom factor. The higher the zoom factor, the less pixel ticks (inches, cm's points, etc.) will count between numbers. The number of ticks depends upon the unit type being called upon. At 6400% zoom (highest zoom in factor you can go) with Pixels set as units, you'll get two ticks between numbers which are numbered every three pixels. One tick per pixel. From 2400% to zoom out to 600% all ticks are worth one pixel but the visual distance between the ticks becomes smaller as the zoom goes closer to 100%. When you zoom out from 600% closer to 100% each tick becomes worth more than one pixel where at 100% you have every tick being worth 6 pixels.
