1" is one inch

GetUIStringFromCoord
GetCmdStringFromCoord

Where measurementsystem can be INCHES | CENTIMETERS | MILLIMETERS | PICAS |
POINTS | PRINTERPOINTS | CICEROS | DIDOTPOINTS | METRICPOINTS | FEET | METERS
GetMeasurements


The coord is a large integer number that you can add together, divide,
etc. If you want to add say 1 inch to something, then you would simply need
to pass "1in" to GetCoordFromString to get the number to add to the coord.
Then if the PageStream numbering system ever changed, you're "future proof".
