When creating a new layout in Pro 2.4.2 I am finding that the rulers won't show tick marks for any of the divisions of an inch, just the inch marks. I am then only able to place guides on the inch marks.

I can get a more defined ruler if I copy an existing layout that has fractional tick marks.

Can anybody duplicate that or is it just me?

Hi Jeff, 

Did you create the new layout through the Catalog View or the Catalog Pane (using the context menu command) instead of from the ribbon (Insert > New Layout)?  If so, you ran into a known bug - BUG-00012559. This issue has been addressed for version 2.5. 

Hope this helps, 

Tom

Tom,

Yup, I was using the catalog pane. I tried it with the insert tab and I was able to get the finer tick marks.

Thanks!
