Angry Pixels to inches when making a new canvas

When I want a new canvas the window always comes up in pixels rather than inches. This is something new and frustrating since I must keep changing from pixels to inches. What did I do to cause this situation? More important how do I get a default in inches rather than pixels.

Thanks.

Re: Pixels to inches when making a new canvas

you dont mention what software you're using.

also, this doesnt belong in the restoration forum and with 218 posts, you shld know that by now. i'm moving it to the software forum.

Re: Pixels to inches when making a new canvas

Photoshop > File > New gives you a dialog box where you can set all canvas size options: width, height, ppi. units

also, change Preset to > US Paper

You can change ruler units in Edit > Preferences > Units and Rulers. Do this with no image open.

you can also change ruler units by right-clicking on ruler.

If you don't use PS, look in Help for your application

Re: Pixels to inches when making a new canvas

Thanks for your responses but you won't believe this. Opened up a window and it came up in inches. Didn't do a thing. Evidently when I closed the computer down last night whatever I had done was cancelled.

Sorry for the false report.
