Ruler ticks too small in inches

Recommended Posts

When the document units are set to Inches the ticks of the ruler are too numerous to be usable/readable.  On a 27" monitor at some zooms there are 32 ticks in 1-1/4 inches (between major divisions).  With only the center one being a different size.  On most of the other units offered every 2nd, 4th or 5th tick is a different size.  This would certainly help.


Best would be to have the 16th tick long, the 8th and 24th tick a little shorter, and the 4th, 12th, 20th and 28th tick a bit shorter still and the rest the short size they are now.  So that every 1/8 of a major division is marked.


I currently find myself zooming to find the best spacing on the ticks, so I can count them, rather than the best zoom for the image.
