Setting Doent Presets from Points to Inches - Adobe Indesign Windows

Just downloaded a tryout version of In-Design CS 3.0. from the Adobe website and attempting to use the demo. I am a current PageMaker user. Where does one go to change the doent presets from points to inches? Can't seem to find it under file? I am working in a Windows 2000 platform. Can anyone help?...

    It's in the edit menu

    Edit>Preferences>Units & Increments

    Linda,

    With no files open, go to Edit > Preferences and setup the units and increments to suit yourself. Close the preferences, and thereafter any doent you make new will be in your preferred measurement system.

    I like to right-click on the rulers (View > Rulers) and choose the measurement system on the fly. That way, even an old file can have its measurement system preferences changed quickly at any time.
