How Many Inches Is Double Spacing?


There are 72 points to an inch, and the most commonly used font size is 12 pt, which results in a font only 1/6' tall. Thirty-six point fonts will equal 1/2' in height. Double spacing allows for additional white space above the actual font lettering, so the font runs 220 to 270% of the size of a specific font type. A 12 pt Times New Roman font, e.g., will result in lines spaced between 27.6 and 28.8 points apart - or less than 1/2 inch.
