__Convert Spaces To Units will convert fixed units like inches, mm, or points to or from "spaces" based units as used internally by Sibelius. (One "space" is defined as 1/4 of the staff height). __This plugin will probably only have niche uses, but if you are using wildcards that use space units, or are writing plugins, or are just trying to figure out how many x units in the General tab of the Properties window will make an inch, it can come in very handy. __This plugin requires Sibelius 6.1 __Updated 8 September 2010 to correct invalid conversion of points. __Updated 14 August 2016 to prepare for multiple staff sizes. __Updated 13 July 2023. Version 01.08.00. Fixed the scaled staff size to reflect the current staff units, and restructured some code so it can be called by other plugins.
