Summary0017027: scripter: document that newDocument()'s size must be in the unit specified


size = A tuple (width, height) describing the size of the document. You can\n\
use predefined constants named PAPER_<paper_type> e.g. PAPER_A4 etc.\n\,

but, at least if you specify the unit as MM (which is probably the most common choice, with the inches), you will need PAPER_A4_MM.

the documentation should specify that...

or -- but it might be too late -- the size should be defined in pt...

... or there should be a function that allows to use PAPER_A4 and pass the pt value to newDocument().

... i've just spent half an hour trying to understand why my guides hat a way too big value...

It does say "PAPER_* constants are expressed in points. If your document\n\
is not in points, make sure to account for this."

But I have added some extra text.

i rather thought about a notice about it in the new_document command:

use predefined constants named PAPER_<paper_type>_<unit> e.g. PAPER_A4, PAPER_A4_MM etc.\n\
