SUMMARY: If your Publisher documents are meant for the screen, configure the software to use pixel measurement units.
Depending on your configuration, Microsoft Publisher 2007's ruler may be set to inches or centimeters as the software is mainly meant for use in designing documents to be printed. However, if you are using Publisher to create web publications, PDFs, or other documents meant for the computer screen, then a ruler set to pixel units may be more convenient for you.
