Thanks for responding. My photoshop NEVER uses the last unit of measurements from the previous time, even if the last time I made a new image file was five minutes later. I have NEVER made a file where I set it to be in Picas, either. Something so small can be maddening. I just finished a job where I had to make a new image file of every letter of the alphabet, so for 24 times, I had to reset it from Picas to inches. Any other suggestions?
