Overall user interface measurements to mm?

Recommended Posts


I know, that in the Preferences you can set the Lines and Text in mm, but is there a way to set everything to that? In the guides manager, etc.



Or it might be a bug, because everything is shown in points, although the setting is unchecked.

When you create a "New Document" you have the option "Document Units:" which you can set to mm. Then you ruler, guides... will all be in mm.

The "Document Setup" on the toolbox bar can also be used to change to whatever measurement unit you want later.
