I started a new file in Draw where the rulers looked OK - had inch increments displayed. I later opened it to continue work on it, but the rulers are empty - no increments displayed, just blank rulers.

I think this happens naturally if the unit of measurement is sufficiently large, so that all the incremental marks will be so far apart that they are off the display.

How do I get the measurements to display?

Go to Tools | Options... | LibreOffice Draw | General | Settings |
Unit of measurement - and choose something other than kilometre or mile.

Thanks Brian, but that's not the problem. I have the Unit of Measure set to inches - just like it was yesterday when I initiated the file and the incremental marks displayed. Any other thoughts?

The other explanations I can think of are:

o Your drawing page size is correspondingly smaller - so as to produce the same effect.

o You have Drawing scale (in the same Options dialogue) set sufficiently high - perhaps 10:1 or whatever. If you change this, I think you may need to save and reopen your document to see the effect; this corresponds to your original problem description.
