To quickly change Ruler units, double click in the ruler area to display the Units & Rulers preferences. Or, to simply change the ruler’s unit of measurement,  Control -click (Mac) | Right Mouse -click (Win) within the ruler area to select from the context sensitive menu.

    Hi Julieanne. Thank you for all the amazing tips trough the years!
    I’m wondering if you could explain something about Brushes:
    when creating brushes the ‘Dual brush’ option loads many brushes but not exactly the ones that are loaded into the Brushes Window so … which brushes are loaded? (and there’s no way to manage those brushes with the Preset Manager)
    Thanks in advance!
