Type Scale

M.A.C.S. currently has a few (very limited quantity) type scales which we are selling for just $5 each through our Resource Librarian.

A "type scale", also called a "type gauge", is used in the publishing industry to measuring various parts of type. This particular Type Scale measures:

  • Font sizes (from 5-point to 72-point),
  • Leading (the space between lines of text) (From 5-point to 17-point),
  • Rules (the thickness of straight lines) (from 1/4-point to 6-point),
  • There are also three rulers: Inches, Points and Picas.

This particular Type Scale is transparent (some are not) with black measurement markings. You simply place this rectangular guide on top of any text you want to measure. Since you can see the text through the clear areas, you just line up the text with the black markings and read the measurement. Once you have this information, you can use those settings in your page-layout program or word processor in order to achieve the same results.

As a M.A.C.S. member you are entitled to checkout items from our Resource Library. These CDs and DVDs provide training and How-To tips about the Macintosh and some of its programs.

  • NOTE: Although these tutorials are for older prograrms, many of their principles will still apply to current versions of the same type of program. For example, even though AppleWorks is no longer sold or supported by Apple, many of the tips on that training disc will apply to Apple's "TextEdit" and "Pages" programs.
