default unit of measure?

• Jul 3, 2018 - 02:19

is there a way to set default units of measure? Page settings (layout) keeps defaulting back to mm next time I open a score. I click inch, edit margins etc. But this only lasts for the session. I didn't see anything for this in Preferences.

Thank you,


No, there isn't. The Units are neither stored in Preferences nor in the Score. Or rather: they are stored in mm, and only for display converted

Because I change margins for different purposes for the same and similar scores. And because I found it hard to remember which style did what when I tried styles. Major nuisance to flip through styles to see which comes close to what I need for a particular situation. Then tweak again to fix something. MUCH faster and simpler for me just to set layout margins and other settings as needed.

I have Decades of default prefs setting, layout and macro coding experience in word processing, database and spreadsheet apps, But for those more comfortable with styles, go for it!
