Displaying Rulers

The TextEdit ruler does more than just measure. The horizontal ruler above the document shows the length of the typing line and lets you quickly adjust left and right margins, indents, and set tabs. You can hide the ruler to get more room for your document. When you press Return to start a new paragraph, TextEdit continues to use the same ruler settings. As you work with a document, ruler settings change. Instead of resetting ruler settings each time, you can copy and paste them.

Show and Hide the Ruler

Click the Format menu, point to Text, and then click Show Ruler.

TIMESAVER Press +R to show or hide the ruler.

A check mark next to the command indicates the ruler is shown. A non check mark indicates the ruler is hidden.
