How to set the ruler to percent units in Affinity Photo?

Recommended Posts

I wasn't able to find out how to set the ruler in percent units wich is really a big need for me. When I go to the zoom or ruler  I do not see "percent" as an option.

Guides using percentages of the document width or height makes perfect sense, but what would 'percent' document units be percentages of? :/

Of the document of course. I am just to Photoshop (That is what I have at work) to me the ruler is an overview of the document.

I think you misunderstood me. I was really just echoing what @MEB wrote:

There's no way to set the document units (which is what you have been changing) to percentages.

 

If you were to set the document units to percentages, you would still need to use real physical units (or pixels) somewhere.

Photoshop has Voodoo installed as standard.
