Q: In the documentation of the JW Lua classes, there are some types that I'm not familiar with. What do these mean?
A: Most types that aren't objects in the documentation are integer types. Some of the most common ones are listed here:
| || Integer types for Finale's Enigma Time Units (EDUs). One quarter note is 1024 EDUs. Constants for common EDU durations are listed in the
| ||Integer type used for percent values.|
| ||Integer types for Finale's Enigma Virtual Page Units (EVPUs). 1 EVPU = 1/288 of an inch. (16 and 32 specifies the bit width of the storage.)|
| ||Integer types for higher-precision measurements. 1 EFIX = 1/64 of an EVPU = 1/18432 of an inch. (16 and 32 specifies the bit width of the storage.)|
