Hello,

I have tried searching through help and the forums for this but I have not been able to find it yet.

I am trying to change the measurement in illustrator from pixels to inches, because I am printing cards out an need them to be in specific measurements.

Does anyone know how to do this?

I have tried looking through the preferences as well.

Cmd(Cntrl)-R and right click the open box where the rulers intersect in the upper left hand corner.

On a Mac, that would be Control-Click a ruler and choose the measurements you want.
