Ruler in AP in inches had large numbers, easily read.  I did something, and now the inches is tiny with many markings.  I cannot read them.


Please tell me how to undo whatever I did.

The number of ruler gradations varies with the zoom level but the size of the numbers should not. Are you sure you are seeing the numbers change size?

Hi, the rulers are changing, depending the size of the document and the zoom level.

Also, if your document is in pixels or mm, the numbers and amount of markings will vary.


Go to Document> Resize document and check inches in the dropdown menu, choose inches. See if that helps.
