When creating a new document the measure in points and pica.
We have changed the units in preferences to millimetres but still the new document measurements are in points and picas
The rulers and all other measurements are in millimetres, just the page sizes are in points and picas, would really like to change the page size measurements to millimetres also.
Does anyone know how we can do this please?

It is not a bug, though at first glance it may seem to be.
With no documents open, changing the preference sets the new preference for
future documents without altering any existing documents without your
With a document open, changing the preference affects ONLY the open
document without chancing your workspace.
So, if you prefer to work in Pica's and have a one-off project that demands
the file be delivered in mm, you can change the document without impacting
your personal workspace.
It may seem like a hassle to work the preferences this way, but I believe
it gives more control to the designer.
Change the units in preferences with no documents open.
