!/4" Grid for background

What would be the easiest way to set up a page with 1/4" grid pattern?

Also how can I save it so I can pull it up whenever needed?

I Could probably figure it out, but if someone knows this off the top of their head it would sure save me some head scratchin

Thanx, Scott

1/4" Grid PDF

Here is a quater in grid in PDF format. Make sure not to scale, fit to paper, zoom, or anything when printing so it will stay in scale.

Good luck!

It would certainly be possible to create a "page" of say, 8.5x11 with a 1/4" grid of light colored lines on the red green (ground)plane and save it as a template to draw upon with 2D tools...but..why?

Open the styles editor to change the background preferences.

What's with the spamming ads?

Just logged in to check the daily posts and have seen several post for offset printers?????
What gives?

Is there a spam filter for the forums?
