I'm tired of having to click on view > show/hide > rulers & grids > rulers in order have rulers opened.  Is there anyway that I can choose for Rulers to always be showing for every pdf I am working on unless I turn it off?

 

Also, I read a thread that was from 2016 about this with no updates since 2017.  They also did not provide a solution.  They did say I could just do a Ctrl + R which helps.  Why aren't articles updated?  By reading that thread it seems this is impossible to do even though someone wrote that it was allowed in the then 2017 current version.  But someone said that wasn't true.  I get so frustrated with finding a solution for any problems I have in Adobe.
