The measurements in inches is not what I know, as shown in the screen capture.

 

Question is how do I bring the readings back to what was there originally, something I understand?

 

Keep up the good work.

 

Kind regards,

I don't know what you know or what was there originally, so I'm just guessing, but if you mean that there are too many numbers after the decimal point, go to Preferences > User Interface & change the Decimal Places for Unit Types setting for inches to whatever you want, or click on the Reset button there.

Wow, you can change it for the rulers, R C-R?! In which version?

Like I said, without more info from David, I can only guess about where the measurement display is 'not what he knows.' I am not particularly good at mind reading -- If I were, it would be a great help when I go shopping for gifts for my wife!  :lol:

 

He also appears to be using the Photo beta, so perhaps he has triggered some bug that fiddling around in the preferences will correct -- with betas it is hard to know what will work.

Where in the screenshot you can see inches, R C-R? Same behavior in the MAS …

I am assuming the ruler is displaying inches to 5 decimal places but I don't know if that is because of the zoom level, some quirk in the beta I can't reproduce on my Mac in the retail version, a setting somewhere or a prior step that the screenshot cannot show, some issue with that particular photo, or what.

 

What I do know is that sometimes just changing something in a misbehaving app's preferences corrects odd behaviors, is an easy thing to try that has very little chance of doing anything undesirable, & for the Affinity apps is something I personally would try before resorting to the "nuclear" option of resetting everything.

JimmyJack.    Your guess is correct.  That is what does happen.  I will do what you suggested the next time this happens.   By the way, JimmyJack, how did you know that is what I did?

 

Kind Regards,
