When I start a new image file, it always shows the size in picas, even though in preferences I have it set to show measurements /rulers  in inches.
It's driving me nuts.
Is there a fix?

Mine always seems to choose whatever I selected last time. So If I create a new doc in cm it will default to cm next time.

Create a new doc and see it that works for you

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?
