Is there a way to force Writer to make every page a certain number of lines?

To be a bit clearer, I understand that the number of lines per page is dependent on the font, size, spacing and margins of the document, but I was wondering if there was a way for each page to have an identical number of lines-25 in my case. It's nothing imperative so if it's not possible then that is that, but it doesn't hurt to ask, eh?

Thank you for your reply(ies) in advance!

EDIT: Something I forgot to mention is that writer uses inches to dictate the spacing rather than points(a point is equal to 1/72 of an inch. Using this to convert my desired number of points to inches usually leads to an irrational number and further rounding by the program). Is there a way to use a different measurement unit?
