Note: Rulers in new documents will be turned on automatically, if a document before it also had Rulers activated.
The rulers' settings apply to all Pixelmator Pro documents. You can change settings at any time, even if you’re editing an image.

Tip: Press and holdon your keyboard to automatically snap to rulers' tick marks as you're adjusting the zero origin rulers.
To reset the zero origin, double-click the area where the horizontal and vertical rulers meet in the upper-left corner of the canvas.
