Can you please correct your 'Rulers' when using for inches?

Your interface display treats inch rulers like they are metric measurements. Proper 'inch' rulers should show the relative size of the individual 'ticks' depending on the 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 delimiters. Instead you show all the same size except the 1/2 mark. Your 'ticks' are also too small and hard to see, especially on laptop screens.

Would be valuable to learn the decimal equivalents, then one can just enter the exact value for guides and such, instead of guessing at it. I use decimals for everything so I never noticed the markers weren't all that great.

EX -

.125 is 1/8
.25 is 1/4
.375 is 3/8
.5 is 1/2

and so forth....

If you’re using a control that allows you to type in a value you can enter an expression instead. So instead of remembering (or working out) that three sixteenths is 0.1875 you can simply type 3/16 and let the app do the arithmetic for you.

You are missing my point. We already know and use decimal equivalents, that is not the issue. The ruler, as it is currently implemented, is not a correct visual implementation. As a graphics program Publisher should adhere to the correct visual representations of the tools offered.
