    PSE6 Editor - Document Size suddenly shows inches not pixels

    . . Because it forgot all my settings, views, windows and reverted to default. Happens sometimes :-(

    The big problem is: I always forget (getting old) how to get pixels back to showing at bottom left of an image window instead of stupid inches or cm which are of no use to me at all.

    So, if anybody knows the exact path of clicks to where that is set I would appreciate a little help (with PSE6, not LR, CS, PS unless they are same in this regard).

    going to "edit > prefs" seems not to get me there, unless I'm missing something :-(

    I hate Adobe's "Help", a wasteland of disinformational trivia, grrrr . . .

    Thanks,

    Hi Ted,
    edit > prefs > units & rulers..... then change to pixels in the 'unit' area of the screen; it is in the' Rulers' drop down box.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks John,

    "You da man" as they say over here . .

    Hmmm . . . rulers . . of course . . how logical . . why didn't I think of that . . . thanks, Adobe - well hidden!

    I had been there and actually thought "rulers? Never used them, can't be that!".

    I've actually had this issue for quite a while - I change my settings in the Preferences and a couple of days later they are back to points again (I want inches).

    XpatUSA, please let me know if it does to you again - I mean suddenly change back to whatever you don't want.

    Now there's a coincidence, my PSE7 had mysteriously changed preferences last night when I used it. No idea why.
