    Default Ruler showing top and left side is inches and pixels??

    Hello. Don't know what I did or how to fix it. Tried looking it up but must not have the wording right to fix it as this page under "options" looks the same as other pages but the ruler is different. See screen shot.

    How do I fix this or make all pages the same for rulers?

    Sue, I have never seen different units and spacings on rulers at the same time.

    It is possible to have different (paired) settings on different Variants.

    Utilities > Options > Grid & Ruler.
    Set the Major spacing to be the same unit of measurement across all variants - I use 50px with 5 subdivisions.

    The other thing to check is the Origin.
    In web pages, it is usually sets (0, 0) to be top-left.
    With the Ruler visible, click & drag from the top-left corner where the rulers meet ( vertical cross) onto the top-left corner of the design page and release.
    The (x, y) values will change to 0 and the page height when the Co-ordinate direction has been set to increase to the right and down.

    Whatever you pick should have the same choices across all variants.
