I know how to change the units of measurement. Edit, Preferences and then I can change picas to inches or whatever. In the old CC 6, this would become the default. Now, in the online InDesign, every single new document I have to change the preferences from picas to inches. Is there a way to permanently change this? It's annoying as heck!

Close all documents. Change the value From InDesign Preferences, Units and Increments.
You have to do this with no documents open at all to make it default.
Older documents you already had, there you have to change it once and then save the document
OMG. That was ridiculously easy. Thank you--it was driving me nuts having to change the units every single time.
This is how a lot of defaults work in InDesign. Change something when an object is selected and you change the attribute on that object. Change something when no object is selected and you make that the defult for all new objects in that InDesign document. Change something when no document is open and you make that the default for new objects in all new documnets created on that computer.
Whenever I install a new copy of InDesign or set up a new computer I set the defaults to what I want. eg. type size and leading incrments to 1 point instead of 2 and tracking/kerning to 5 units instead of 20 (which honestly should be the defaults out of the can).
Thank you soo much! This has been driving me nuts for years now. 😬🙃
Heck YES! THANK YOU!!!
