Chapter 1. The Basics > Measurement units

Measurement units

With a few exceptions, values in palettes and dialog boxes display in the current default horizontal or vertical measurement unit. To choose new default measurement units for all future documents, make sure no documents are open; or leave a document open to change the units for that document only. Go to Edit > Preferences > Preferences, click Measurements under Document or Web Document, then under Horizontal and/or Vertical, choose Inches, Inches Decimal, Picas, Points, Millimeters, Centimeters, Ciceros, or Agates . For a Web document, you can also choose Pixels. Web and print documents can have different default measurement units .
