Default Rulers setting
annoying - and probably been covered before
is there a way to set the default setting in Layouts>Set Rulers to pixels?
Hey, surely somebody out there knows an answer?? :)

Er...by selecting "Pixels" in the Set Rulers dialogue box.
mmm yes, but every time i open a file, enter layout mode it has reverted to centimetres, is there a start-up setting to set a default preference.
FMP is supposed to remember the unit measurement that you've set in the Set Rulers dialogue box. I'm using FMP Adv. v11 on a Windows machine and it remembers the setting just fine whenever I close and re-open the file.
I'm sorry, I don't know why it's not working on your system.
Is the file that's not retaining the ruler setting local to your computer or are you connecting to a shared database?
ahah - and therein lies the rub, if I'm only accessing a local file - all is good and pixels stays selected, but if I open a remote shared db, it resets to centimetres...
I'm a bit suprised that opening the file with a full access password and making the change didn't work here but....
You might need to briefly take the file down off the server, open it with filemaker pro, make your setting change and put it back up on the server.
