    Something I came up with a while back, it is part of my PaintCAD (which hasn't been updated with it yet).

    Maybe I'll come up with Log and Log/Log paper next.

    For those who are confused you print it, then you have a sheet of graph paper.

    On the other hand you could go to http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/ and download a .pdf of the graph paper you want in whatever format and scaling suits your needs best.

    I'm tempted to write a Python program to produce line grids.

    Thanks for graph, Bill.

    How did you draw it? Does it involve copy and paste or did you painstakingly lay out each line? :eek:

    Painstakingly drawing 10 lines for X and Y, then lots of copy.

    If Paint had some other mode besides 96 pixels / inch it would be perfect. As is, it is usable. Modern printers can do much, much better.

    Tried it with a B&W laser printer, still looks pretty good.

    Bill,

    I use cutepdf. I had formatted a word file with the margins of sufficient size, inserted your graphic, and printed it at 600 dpi.

    You can get cute pdf at www.cutepdf.com

    Here's a python script that will generate a page of lines in PostScript.
