    Fix it? That's not broken.

     

    That's 51 picas - picas are a really normal unit used in page layout and graphic design. But if you've never thought in picas before, you may want to see units with which you are more familiar, like inches or millimeters. To do that, then when InDesign is open but no documents are open, go to Edit -> Preferences -> Units & Increments and change both horizontal and vertical units to your preference. Then when you start a new document, you'll see what you chose here.
