    How to change ruler dimensions?

    Hey all,
    I want to change the ruler dimensions-- not from inches to mm, but from units of 10th's (which it currently is) to the more commonly used american version of 1/8th's.... as in 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, etc. I want to use the ruler to measure out something to 7/8", and I can't get an accurate measurement on that right now. How do i change that? I looked under Artrage Preferences and under Stencil Options, and couldn't find anything there....???

    And oh how I hate it too
    I once worked somewhere that bought in a bunch of new "Imperial" steal rulers that would have cost the company a small fortune to correct the problems they would have caused had someone not soon noticed that the subdivisions on the rulers were in 10th's and not 8th's of an inch!
    I don't know where this "metrification" of the Inch came from but I have yet to encounter any workshop or client that works in it!!!
    Sorry, had to get that off my chest!!!
    But to your question Steve, no I fear there is not.
