Also. you can set the grid to measuer in feet. But if you want to keep the grid as is, then basicaly figure 1 grid square = 1 foot. But yeah, there's a measuerment tool you can use to set your measurements more exact. __________________ Dave Baer Professor of Digital Arts Digital Media Arts College Boca Raton, Florida dbaer@dmac.edu
