Sorry if this has been raised before.

The default setting for ruler measurements in both Photo and Designer is pixels, presumably because the majority use that. However I mainly work in cms and it drives me round the bend have to change the setting each time I open a file.

Please could a future update include the ability to set your own default measurement unit in Preferences?

MEB - many  thanks but I am, as you suggest, changing  document units selecting the View Tool (hand icon) and selecting them in the Units dropdown in the context toolbar. The problem is that I have to do this with each file I open because the default setting is pixels.

I am asking if Preferences could include the option to elect your own default measurement unit.

Yes, please!

A measure tool of some kind would be welcome as well.

A lot of my work is published at a fixed scale. Measuring a ruler included in the photo and then scaling the dimensions of the photo down to the desired (calculated) size is very common in my workl I can use a rectangular marquee combined with the info panel to take a measurement, but then often I have to rotate the ruler that is in the photo first to set it exactly horizontal. A measure tool is a lot faster.
