Would you ever consider putting one additional item in the current right-click menu when right-clicking on the ruler?  This would make switching between units more convenient for many...

Please consider adding the "Measurement Units..." item as shown below...

Thanks for considering it!

You are probably right that the ruler would be more useful, if you could change the ruler’s Measurement Units via a context menu.

But I must confess that I never use the ruler.


By The Way:

You can change the measurement units “on the fly” by typing in a number in one of the measurement dialog boxes followed by
e for EVPUs (or evpus, or EVPUs)
pt for points (or pts, or points) 1pt = 4e
s for spaces (or sp, or spaces) 1s = 6pt
p for picas (or pi, or picas) 1p = 2s
i for inches (or ", or in, or inch, or inches) 1i = 6p
c for centimeters (or cm, or centimeters)
m for millimeters (or mm, or millimeters)

Note: When you’re overriding the global setting in this way, you even have an extra unit option (millimeters) not available in the sub-menu for Measurement Units.
