    Measurement units of gridPreferences

    still_und_leise Level 1

      Hi,

       

      how can I unify the measurement units of preferences. For example: I want to know the amount of space between baseline grid lines. This works:

       

        var grid = app.activeDoucument.gridPreferences.baselineDivision;

       

      However, in InDesign the value is 14.4Pt, but the script tells me: grid = 5.08. I don't know what unit this is supposed to be, but is there a way to get the pt-value?

       

      Thanks for your help.
