\vspace, I often run into a decision of which units to use. In many examples I see the use of
in, and so on. I also use
.1\textheight. I wonder if there is a standard unit that makes sense for moving boxes or figures in beamer; I am recently consolidating all of my vertical space units to
ex but is this sensible? Is there an equivalent horizontal space unit which corresponds to character width (for a monospace font), for instance?
It depends why you are moving things.
