How do I change measuring units to inches in the rules at the top and left side of the default window? Thanks.

Asked by Dan W. on 2017-05-29

Measuring units in rulers at the top and left side of the default Inkscape window always pop up the the unit "px" indicated. I work exclusively in inches, but have not had success in changing the default measuring unit to inches. I'd appreciate any help you can give. Thanks.

Hi Dan,

go to File > Document properties > First tab (Page) and select a different 'default unit' (top right corner).

Btw. standard new document template should be in mm, not in px - are you using an outdated Inkscape version or a custom template? Current version is 0.92.1.

Kind Regards,

Can you help with this problem?
