    Set unit preferences (Javascript)

    PBossens Level 1

      I can't find a way to set the unit preferences for Illustrator CS6/CC using JavaScript.

       

      I found that this works (setting units for stroke):

      var units = 2; // 0-inches, 1-milllimeters, 2-points

      app.preferences.setIntegerPreference("strokeUnits", units)

       

      But I want to set the ruler units ("General" in the interface), and this does not work:

      app.preferences.setIntegerPreference("rulerUnits", units)

       

      Any help?
