hello. Would there be a way to change the default ruler units once and for all (from 'picas' (don't even know what that is) to mm), instead of having to do this for every single doent I open? Would be great. thanks jmb...

    Do it with no doents open.

    That did it. Great, thanks a lot.
    Where did you get that from? If it is a public knowledge base or some manual, I'd like to be able to have a look there myself next time.

    thanks again

    It's sort of the first thing you learn and I'm sure it's in the ID help
    somewhere. Search on defaults and you'll likely find something.

    All defaults in InDesign are set with no doent open.

    Keep in mind that many defaults are actually properties of the doent, not the application. Changes made to one of these with no doents open will apply to all newly-created doents, but not to doents that already exist.
