Hey guys its the most computer illiterate man in the world here.

I need an A4 sheet of paper with 20mm by 20mm squares on them in a grid, to represent model bases and the same for 25mm by 25mm. But im an absolute computer twat and cant work out how to do it. I am about to resort to ruler and pencil but i thought with this community of computer whizzkidz id ask here first if anyone knows how to do it.

Please dont just say use excel etc as im that much of a muppet i need to be walked through it.

Cheers guys

Hi Andi,

It's prbably best to go the pencil and paper route, but try this:

1. Open a blank word document
2. On the toolbar go to 'Insert' then select 'Table' and select one 8 columns wide by 12 rows tall
3. Right click on the table you've just inserted and selected 'Table Properties' from the menu that comes up.
4. On each of the little tabs that apper, set the 'Row Height' and 'Column Height' to 2cm or 2.5cm.
5. Cross your fingers

That should work, but you may need to play around with it for a while to get it right. like i say, pencil and paper may be best!

Dave
