Chapter 11. Working with Objects in Layouts > Changing ruler and grid units

Changing ruler and grid units

FileMaker lets you set the ruler and grid to measure the layout and its items in inches, pixels, or centimeters.

To change ruler and grid units:

1.
To change the units, choose Layouts > Set Rulers (Figure 11.29).

Figure 11.29. Choose Layouts > Set Rulers to adjust the measurement units of Graphic rulers, Ruler lines, the Object Grids, and the Size Palette.


2.
The Set Rulers dialog box includes two pop-down menus (Figure 11.30). The top one sets the Units used by the Graphic rulers, Ruler lines, the Object Grids, and the Size Palette. The second pop-down menu, Grid Spacing, controls the fineness of the Object Grids’ mesh of horizontal and vertical lines. Make your adjustments to one or both pop-down menus and click OK.

Figure 11.30. The Set Rulers dialog box includes two pop-down menus: one for ruler units and one for controlling the fineness of the Object Grids’ mesh.
