[*] In a print layout, pixels can't be chosen as the unit, but “px” can be used when entering values.


For Measurements, choose the default Horizontal and Vertical unit separately: Inches, Inches Decimal, Picas, Points, Millimeters, Centimeters, Ciceros, or Agates (see page 30). For a Web layout only, you can also choose Pixels as the unit. These units are used for the Measurements palette, rulers, and dialog boxes—except for font size, leading, frame width, and line width, which always display in points, regardless of the current default unit.
