document units vs font units

Recommended Posts

Hi

Its difficult for me to switch mentally from displaying  pt. (the usual unit of font size) to mm (the usual layout unit of page layout )

I would find it much more easy for me to have all fonts sizes always in pt. and all other measurements in mm

the switch thru the prefs is clumsy

I'm evidently not a grafic designer as my question may be ridiculous for the pros

Ps I know that I can enter sizes in any supported units in the entry boxes

You mention the setting by prefs as being clumsy but I don't understand that comment. The setting in Preferences to show the font sizes in points is a one-time action that should resolve your problem.
