Make rulers available in excel!
This is a quote from Office Excel Help, "Unlike Microsoft Word, Excel does
not provide a horizontal or vertical ruler, and there is no quick way to
measure the width or height of a worksheet in inches." Well, why not? (Just
the fact that it is written so clearly in Excel Help means I am not the only
one to look for it.

The ruler is reversed ONLY for one paragraph. I can't seem to figure out how

correct language from the pop-up you get when you click the language

It's generally considered polite to put your question in the body of the
post, rather than strictly post a subject. As well, details such as what
version of Access and of Windows can be useful.
That having been said, Access gets its unit of measure from the operating
system. The only way to have the ruler in Access be in inches is to choose
U.S. rather than Metric for the Measurement Units in Regional Settings in
the Control Panel.

Is there a ruler to display in Microsoft Office Onenote?
If you think of a ruler similar to the one in Word, then no.
However, you can have ruled lines if you go to Format > Rule Lines and then
select a style for ruled lines.
I hope this helps.

With inches, the dimensional are usually specified as binary fractions: in
1/2th, 1/4th, 1/8th, etc. Visio seems to support only decimal divisions on
grid and rulers. Any possibility to show them with binary divisions? any
Found it: Change units to just "Inches" (instead of "Inches (decimal)").
Should not it be default for mechanical drawings with US units?

When creating a document and I set my margins and tab the stylus (or whatever
that pointer thing is called) lines up perfectly with the marks on the ruler.
After saving document and then I go back to edit the document, when I try to
move the stylus, it does not line up with the mark. It is either a little
before the number of a little after.
If I hold down the Alt key and move the stylus it moves in small increments
and I can line it up.
Any idea why this does this and how I can fix it. It is very time consuming
to have to do this.

I have a simple drawing, 1:1 scale, inches, nothing fancy. The kind you
get by pressing the "new" button and not changing anything.
I'd like to have 100% zoom display as actual size (1 in on screen = 1 in
on diagram). However, 100% zoom appears to be displaying closer to a
114% factor. I know Photoshop has a way to tell it what your screen DPI
is. Is there a way to fix this problem in Visio?

There isn't one. You could make one with the Drawing toolbar. If it's
linear measurement (such as inches or cm), you're interested in, a ruler
would apply only to printing, not the screen, since the screen can be zoomed
up or down, different size monitors can be used, and the monitor resolution
changed, all affecting the physical size of the stuff displayed.

Are you familiar with the process of using a ruler or (I'm talking about
actual paper here, not a computer screen) if preferable using those rulers
with a colored transparent strip in them to mark the page you're reading or
proofing? As you move further in the document you mark the line your reading
with the ruler. Kinda like keeping a finger pressed below the last word
you've read. It makes it easy to proof against another copy when you must
move back and forth between pages without getting lost.

This is a very beginner question on adding Tables to a Word doc.
Using Word 2008.
I'm trying to center a table and change its indents from the margins.
I find that when the cursor changes to the double-arrow one (preparing
to drag column borders) then the horizontal Ruler changes to a different
zero point. With the change in the Ruler, it is very difficult to make
sure the table is centered, the widths of the two columns are the same
and the outside "border indent is how I want it.
I assume I'm doing something wrong.
Thanks for any tips.
