.vmi command

The .vmi command specifies the amount of vertical space each line uses. The .vmi spacing is allocated in 2.08-inch increments, and is essentially the flip side of the .lpi command. For example, if the .lpi is set to 6, the equivalent .vmi setting is 8.


.vmi number.lines


number.lines Specifies the number of lines per inch. The default is 8.
If the printer does not support vertical motion, this command has no affect.


Sets the .vmi to approximately four lines per inch. This specifies an actual line spacing of .25-inch per line.
