Metric and inches

I recently moved up into Office 2007. Perhaps I missed something when
I installed it, but all dimensions come up in metric. In Publisher
tools/option I can of course change the rulers over, but that does not
result in an inch default in subsequent Pub documents.

Can this problem be corrected? Thanks.

==================================
I'm guessing you are running Windows XP?

Try the following...

Open Control Panel and go to...
Regional and Language Options / Regional Options tab /
open the Standards and Formats drop window and choose...
English [United States] / Apply / OK.

Re: Metric and inches

This is determined in the Regional settings in the control panel. Be sure you
have English United States enabled.
