Font Size in SketchUp Layout



I have questions regarding “Font Size” in Layout.

a. I am converting font size from Autocad (Millimetre) to SketchUp Layout (Point)
Is it correct if i assume 1 Inch = 72 points?

b. Why font size for SketchUp Layout, in fraction, doesn’t work?

Thank you.


a. yes. In computers, American typographic points are used. In traditional typography, there were several slightly different point definition systems.

Note that font size is also dependent on the font used. In AutoCad old style SHX fonts size denotes the height of capital letters, corresponding TrueType fonts are slightly smaller.
