I am trying to use indesign cs6 for the first time. I started by watching the video tutorial (ten things beginners should know) on adobe TV. already I've run into a problem.
in the tutorial the guy sets up a new document and the preset for margins on the create new document page is in inches. this is what i would like mine to be. however, my default is set in points/picas. I read a discussion thread in this forum saying to go into preferences>units of measurement in order to change the default to inches. I did that. problem solved!
except...when I go to create a new document the menu has reverted back to points/picas. I've tried a number of times, quiting the program, etc. It will not change the presets, which quite defeats their purpose. Is this a glitch? advice?
That preference is document-level. Set it without a document open, and it will become the new document default going forward.
Make sure you have no open documents and the set the units to inches.
that did that job! thanks!
