I am using MS Word. I got a document from a friend, and opening it somehow changed my ruler (for margins) to metric instead of inches. I want to change it back to inches. The rest of the computer is still on U.S. settings so that's not the issue. BRB
Your advice was easy to follow, and it did the trick. Everything is back to normal.
Actually, I lived in Sweden for two years and became thoroughly familiar with the metric system. I use it exclusively in my woodworking. However, I decided to stay with the foot-pound-inch system for MS Word.
Personally, I would strongly recommend the metric system--no fractions, fewer errors, easier to work with. However, it was "not invented here," so it may be a long time in coming.
