Thank you,guys,
Here is the simple code I wrote.

from reportlab.pdfgen import canvas
from reportlab.lib.units import inch
from reportlab.lib.pagesizes import letter
c = canvas.Canvas("print.pdf", pagesize = letter)
this program is to create a pdf file in which I draw two lines and 
there is one inch between the lines,but it seems the distance between 
them is less than one inch when I measure it after printing out . Is there 
anyway to solve this problem?

We all were at some point ;-) Welcome. I think we may need to see some code 
in order to get this figured out. Could you provide a relevent snippet?
