Measuring type size and line space

3. Type gauges


Step 1. Slide the typegauge over the text until the baseline is on top of the baseline of the text you want to measure.


Step 2. Check the size:

  1. Does the type fill the space between the lines, and can the round letters just been seen above and below the black bar?

  2. Are the baselines of two subsequent lines of text at least 3 mm apart?
