    setting default ruler units

    ekphrasis80

      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?

       

      thanks!
