Does Affinity Designer have a RULER feature in inches?

Recommended Posts

I would love to use Affinity Designer except it does NOT have a RULER feature in inches.  This is essential for a designer!!!  You pull out rulers  from the sides and top and bottom of the page.  Look at Illustrator or QuarkXpress for what I am talking about.  It's been a while since I checked in so perhaps Affinity has finally put this feature in???   --- Amy Y.

Well, you should check again because the Designer has it now.

Just ask for a new document and choose any of the available options from the Document Units Pop-up Menu.

In the 1.7 beta, by the way, you can change the ruler units independently from the document units.

Sorry; I seem to be wrong about that. Changing the ruler also changes the document units.
