I don't understand your question... if you zoom in, then the rulers should show more ticks...

I am working on a book about covers using the Perfect Cover Generator.
This works in inches. I need to tell how to draw some additional guides
at distances of 0.25 inch from the generated guides marking the spine.
However the rulers along the sides only measure in inches with 1/4 inch
tick marks. I need at a minimum 1/8 inch marks to approximate the
correct positioning.

How can I refine the rulers to show these 1/8 inch subdivisions? I can
draw my own ruler along a path or convert temporarily to pixels and
count off 18 pixels but either of these techniques  seem a bit
