Measurement - picas

Measurement - picas

I am a newbee in InDesign. Who can explain the strange kind of double comma style in picas? See. attached image.

RE: Measurement - picas

...the decimal values right of the "p" are values in points...



RE: Measurement - picas

...so your horizontal value in points is:

53 x 12 points + 9.45 points = 645.45 points

...there are 12 points in 1 pica...

...with 72 points in an inch, your value is then:

645.45 points divided by 72 = 8.96 inches



RE: Measurement - picas

Thanks a lot
