I've got this turned off currently, but I need to show somebody else how to do it.
I remember when we upgraded to CS 5.5, and you drew a text box on screen or resized a box, a little dimension box would hang onto the corner of the box and show the dimensions. Where do you go to turn that off?
And while I'm at it, how do you create a "default" interface as in, when I first start up InDesign, I want it to automatically use Inches instead of some other form of measurement, I want the rulers to show by default, I want the Reference Point to be set to center by default. I think I heard that if you open InDesign, set everything the way you want it and then close InDesign that it will save everything like that?
Also, any way to set a default font to be the first font selected in the font selection window?
...a little dimension box would hang onto the corner of the box and show the dimensions. Where do you go to turn that off?

In general, anything you can set without a document open will assume the setting as a default for all new documents going forward. That includes units of measure, default font, etc.
Nice. That's what I was looking for. Open the program, but no open document. Then set the stuff, then back out right?
