I'm using Office 2003. I want to make a few templates for project layouts,
including 1/8 and 1/4 inch grid lines (that don't print). Reading similar
posts I found a macro that I think makes the grid into perfect 1/4 inch
squares. The problem is I don't really know what a macro is, or how to cut
and paste it into a module (what's a module?). I downloaded a graph paper
template. It was a symmetrical grid, but not a usable size. So I tried to
hone in on 1/8 inch by just reducing the values in the column/row boxes by
the same percentage. That didn't work because the values would snap to the
nearest allowable value (no fine tune adjustments). So is there a way to make
those point values in the width/height boxes not snap to stepped values?
(i.e. use pixels instead of point values). Do I really have to figure out how
to install a macro? If so, can I make the macro conform the grid to diiferent
sizes? I know Excel is not designed to be a layout program, but jeez, a
simple symmetrical grid pattern built in as a choice on the tool options menu
is too much to ask?
