Points and picas are standard graphics measurements.

 

Why do you skip directly form inches to points?

 

72 points to the inch is unwieldy. 

 

6 picas in an inch, 12 points in a pica

 

 

Picas PLEASE!!!

Hi, I was wondering, will it be possible using didot point and cicero instead of pica point and pica in Affinity Publisher? It would be the best thing ever for all the French designers & typographers to finally recover our own typographic measures. Thanks.

Serif's DrawPlus (a vector drawing application) has didots and ciceros as well as points and picas, but PagePlus (DTP software) doesn't. I have no idea why.

Until we finally get better rulers, here is a workaround. There is already a ruler for dtp-Cicero, others can be made in seconds. You only need the correct formula for the field “Default Tab Stops”. Just ask if you want to know more about that workaround.

 

 

Would it be possible to add picas to the rulers?
