    Question Font Question

    Now for the fun part of trying to explain what I'm looking for. I guess simple is best.

    I do stuff in Photoshop and in AutoCAD. I do some font stuff in CAD and some in Photoshop. Is there a table that tells what the inch equivalent is for points in Photoshop? If this wounderous tool exists where might I find it?

    Thanks for any help!

    With postscript fonts, there are 72 points per inch.

    So a 1/4" font size would be 18 points?
