Hi Xin,


Unfortunately, right now you can only adjust font sizes by pt, not pixel.


Best,

For screens it would be great to have pixels. There could be an option in preferences.

Can we convert font pt to px?

Unfortunately no, you can only use PT. You can always use a converter to check what the PT would be in PX.

Today I found this tool and thought: "Well, this could be something great"! I tried to click it out and stopped at the input field of the text size and the tooltip represents "pt". I looked in preferences and I tried to search how to change that to pixels, 'cause we as digital designers are used to pixels. And it is common sense to working in px, em, or rem unit values and text units are not an exception. Pt values are used in document creators and print designer's fields. Also, that is a UX legacy to working in pixels - all the information of unit sizes should send to developers in px, em, or rem values. Every app and tool that we as designers used and are using cares about the fundamentals of unit sizes. I could not understand motivation and I feel disappointed to found out that this issue is not solved and ignored for so many years. This is a deal-breaker! Seriously you are losing a lot of potential clients.
