Illustrator has a View > Snap to Pixels command. InDesign does not.

 

Edit: Are you referring to Preferences > Guides and Pasteboard > Snap to Zone? That is measured in pixels—always—but InDesign does not care what unit of measure you have enabled.

@Barb Binder You're answering an InDesign question with an Illustrator comment.

 

I really need to figure this out as well. Building a ton of OOH banners right now & for some reason some of these files have snap to pixel on while most do not and short of just starting over with a new file I don't know what to do.

Whoops. Now I see your InDesign comment. I'd delete or edit my prior comment, but it doesn't look like that's an option here. =/

InDesign is not really an optimal tool for web design. Its pixel-based features, export etc. are purely grafted-on courtesies for occasional "and this, too" use.
