I'm pretty sure that Photoshop is the only application that uses Percent, and doubt that even a third party plug-in could change that part of the interface.

I can't say I've ever used a ruler in percents, but I can see where some users might like it.
It's hardly the same thing, but if you have them turned on, smart guides will indicate some things that will help with size-independent layout, such as column and page centers, and centers and edges of objects already on the page, and numeric fields in the control panel can do simple math, so if you want to draw a gide, for example, at 43% of the page width you can draw it anwhere, select it, then enter [page width] * .43 or even 43% (if you specify the units, ID will do the conversion for you if they don't match the expected default for the field) in the x coordinate field and it will snap to position.
Although this isn't quite what I'm looking for, it can certainly work in lieu of proper percentages. Thank you!
Hi, i was looking for this as well, but couldn't find anything.... the closest thing is
if you Right Click on the ruler, and go to custom and add in custom "points" so that the ruler at the top goes from 0 - 100... then its effectively a percentage ruler.
however this is different for every sized document.
but for an A4 portrait document...
right click the top ruler > click custom and enter 8.42
right click the left ruler > click custom and enter 11.91
then your rulers should go from 0 - 100... any other documents, just use trial and error.
best of luck, josh.
