I'm designing a phone app, and a styleguide for the design,
which require all the elements to be pixel perfect and add up to
the screen dimension. There are 2 problems I run into is how to
measure text in Fireworks CS3:
1) Fireworks CS3 measure text in point, not pixel. I use an
online converter but it doesn't quite work. (For example, 17point =
22.666 pixel. Should I just round it up to 23?)
2) Web text is measured based on the em square, not the size
of the character itself. Is there a way to find out the em square
size in Fireworks? (I thought the blue bounding box when the text
is selected is the em square, but I tried taking screenshot and
measure it, and it turned out that it's not the case).
So, to sum it up, what procedure should I follow to measure
text in a pixel perfect design in Fireworks CS3? Thanks.
