I'm in develop mode, and units are changed to inches, from default pixel

Recommended Posts

I'm in develop mode, and units are changed to inches, from default pixel.  I click on crop tool, and immediately, inches changes to pixels.  

 

I really really want inches for cropping.   As I stated earlier, I think is terms of 'inches', for cropping.

 

Man oh man.  Is this frustrating ! ! !

On the dropdown menu can you choose the 4" by 6" alternative?

Then you can type in the dimension you want. Or isn't  that working for you?

I think a lot of users would like to see the Units item in the crop tool context menu bar 'live' regardless of the Mode. Even for the ratio presets, this would be useful for changing the ruler unit display for visualization purposes.

 

It would also be nice if the default unit for the tool was the same as the current document's units setting instead of always defaulting to pixels.

Madame,  On the dropdown menu can you choose the 4" by 6" alternative?

No.   Does not even show inches.  Stays pixels.

This is how it's when I use the  dropdown menu.

For me, it is just like as shown in Madame's latest post -- selecting any preset that uses inches switches the Units in the context toolbar to inches. However, the document window ruler (if visible) does not change.

 

David, your "Like This" link doesn't work. It is https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=reputation&do=add_rating&app_rate=forums&type=pid&type_id=85774&rating=1&secure_key=178ccee85bec21981e1f914f943cde35&post_return=85774. I have no idea where you got that from, but it produces a permissions error.
