    Word 2000 (Word Draw)

    I do allot of drawing with Word 2000 Draw. On the draw bar I can go to grid and get it down to .01. Is it possible to be able to go smaller? Do the newer Word programs have this feature? Is there another program out there that can allow me to get a grid smaller than .01? Also is there a way of going smaller than 500 on the size of the drawing. I do allot of precision drawing.

    Word 2002 SP2 appears to have a minimum of 0.1 cm for the grid too.

    Have you tried creating your drawing at a larger size and then scaling it down?

    Edited to add I just checked out CorelDraw 11 and this allowed me to set a grid at 0.001 mm, not that it was very useful at that size

    Just out of interest, why on Earth would you need to be drawing at a precision of 0.01mm or less?
    0.01mm is about the diameter of a single red blood cell, or about a tenth of a human hair thickness.

    I think that the dimension is 0.01 cm, which presumably is the dimension of 10 red blood cells, or a whole human hair.
