Enabling Optional Display Elements
Rulers and gridlines help position objects on a slide.
The ruler’s unit of measure is controlled from Regional Settings in Control Panel in Windows. Choose Clock and then
Language and Region, and then click the Region heading in Windows 8 (or Region and Language in Windows 7) to
open the Region (or Region and Language) dialog box. On the Formats tab, click Additional Settings and choose U.S.
or Metric from the Measurement System drop-down list.
The display of the vertical ruler is optional. To disable it while retaining the horizontal ruler, choose File
click Advanced, and in the Display section, clear the Show Vertical Ruler check box.
