Hello ,

I am not sure whether my problem has been already discussed here before. I
had a quick look in to the archives and found no matching questions or
solutions.

here goes my problem ....

I have a form with a table layout for transfroming to pdf.
I am successfull in doing the complete tranformation. but, what makes me now
crazy is to make the exact measurements given for the main table and the
small ones inside. The measurements are given to me in cm.
First I tried by giving the actual measurements to the table width (in cm)
by insisting to use cm as the unit of measurement.
The FO file has everything perfect like the way I expected, but when the pdf
is got transformed all measurements are taken in its own way. Then I thought
PDF has the measurement unit in Points, hence go for converting the cms to
points. I did the same by multiplying the cm measurement by 28.35 and
generated the pdf. That also looks strange, not what I expected!
I would like to know an easy and standard way for adapting the given
measurements of a table which gives me the same looks (with correct
measurements) in my pdf document.

What is the standard measurement unit used in pdf after the transformation?

I hope u got what I Am trying to achieve.

thanks for the helps

regards
sudha
