Measuring type

Copy editors use a system of units called picas and points for measurement.

  • 6 picas in an inch, 12 points in a pica, so 72 points in an inch
  • A 24-point headline is a headline that measures 24 points from descender (like g or y) to top of ascender (like h or l or capital letter)
slide8
Points are used to measure the space between lines (called leading)
  • x-height: the size of letters before the ascenders and descenders.
  • Measuring column width: 12p3 means 12 picas, 3 points. This is standard column size. Gutters are usually 1 pica wide.
