    What are 'ch' units? (Word 2000)

    We often receive Word documents from clients with indents etc. measured in units of "ch" rather than the more common "cm" or "inches". What measurement does this abbreviation represent? Someone suggested that it means "characters", and someone else suggested "ciceros", a traditional typesetting unit, although the official abbreviation for that seems to be "cc". The "ch" unit seems to originate mainly in Asian versions of Word.

    These are indeed character units, normally used with Asian language versions of Word. If you can't change them to normal units then see if <!mskb=299339>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 299339<!/mskb> helps (but this only applies to Word 2002 and 2003).
