Yves,

You can activate the rulers in the menu 'View' option
'Rulers'. I still wish there was a small
plug-in that would show the exact number of pixels --
maybe I'll code that one of these days :-)

Jim,

If you want more info and a practicl example on the
pixel-to-inch-to-centimeter conversion, follow this
link to the Use-Revolution Mailing List Archive:
