Converts a measurement from points to lines (1 line = 12 points). Returns the converted measurement as a Single.

Syntax

expression. PointsToLines( Value)

_expression_A variable that represents an Application object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
ValueRequiredSingleThe point value to be converted to lines.

Return Value

Single

Remarks

This method assumes a measurement in 12-point lines — the actual size of any text in the publication has no effect on the conversion factor.

Use the LinesToPoints method to convert measurements in lines to points.

Example

This example converts measurements in lines to measurements in points, demonstrating that the font size in the current selection has no bearing on the conversion factor. Some text must be selected in the active publication for this example to work.

Dim strOutput As String 

' Set text size to 10 points. 
Selection.TextRange.Font.Size = 10 

' Display result for 12 points. 
strOutput = "12 points = " _ 
 &; Format(Application _ 
 .PointsToLines(Value:=12), _ 
 "0.00") &; " lines"
