I would like inches instead of pixels in dialogue box. I think in inches.

Recommended Posts

I would like inches instead of pixels.   I think in inches.  Would be much easer for me, in my workflow.

 

If there is already a way to change pixels to inches, in the dialogue box, please point me to it.

 

Cheers.

 

David

Hi David,

 

Can't you just set the document units at the time of creation or later in File - Document setup, or doesn't that work?

Answering with a question … yes he can, but that does not help him, BatteriesIn

 

No way to change the export units. We all hope to get improved export in future. :wub: 

 

(What works: Rescale the document/artboard. You can overwrite the units (with “in”) in the fields of “Dimensions” if needed. Then export and undo the rescaling.)

Wouldn't it be more efficient to use snapshots rather than undo/redo?

attempting to attach a screen capture and can't.

 

Something has changed, I assume, for attachments.

When I say I think in inches, what this really means, my dimensions are thought in inches, not pixels.

 

BatteriesInc, I see your screen captures.   Thank you.

Kind Regards,

 

Davie

David, inches in “Export…” seems to be far away: Nothing in the feature roadmap, perhaps possible with the Macros (Persona) in the common feature requests.

 

So please try it: Rescale the document/artboard. You can overwrite the units (with “in”) in the fields of “Dimensions” if needed. Then export (and if needed undo the rescaling).

Undo is just one keyboard shortcut, the “Snapshots” feature not.
