I am using Indesign CS 5 with Win7 and have followed the instructions (eg. http://www2.milwaukee.k12.wi.us/msl/Images/Computers/p3_07_howto_setup_document.pdf) of how to change my Units/Meas. from picas to inches several times. However, it always goes back to picas when I start a New document. Then I have to change the margins in Prefs to inches then go back to the new document. Can anyone help me get this Pref change to stay the default? Thank you
To set default preferences, they must be saved while no documents are open.
Close all documents but leave InDesign open, and set preferences the way you like. Now when you create a new document, it will follow those preferences.
That totally worked; thank you so much! --Kurt
