void = SetBoxHor(nFixedUnits)
➢Looking at the measurements palette of QuarkXPress and InDesign, as shown in the image on the right, the effect of this function is to set the value of X equal to nFixedUnits.
➢Textbox resizing functions only work on textboxes whose angle is a multiple of 90 degrees (0°, 90°, 180°, or 270°) and we strongly encourage you to always use non-rotated textboxes (with an angle of 0°) for any macro which contains the above macro function, as explained in the gridtemplate construction guidelines.
➢A fixed unit is the smallest unit of size, used by both QuarkXPress and InDesign, and is defined as 1/65536 of a point. This means that an inch is 4718592 fixed units, and a millimeter is approximately 185771 fixed units.
This function moves the textbox but has no effect on its size.
