Measurements in inches

Postby Mart » Wed May 18, 2011 10:33 am

I'm new to RealDraw. Maybe someone could suggest a simpler way of measuring inches but the method described below has become the way for the time being. Life would be simpler if the RealDraw rulers could be changed to inches but there is only the pixel option isn't there? I've had a good look round and can't find a way of changing this.

I'm using RealDraw for making greetings card inserts. Some good ones are possible too! The trouble is that the card insert size requirements are given in inches, so I have to work with that. I've managed to do this in a couple of different ways, largely by using an external screen ruler (JR Screen Ruler). If the ruler D.P.I. figure is set to 96 and the ruler units set to inches, then I can measure dimensions in inches and the inserts will print at the size the ruler says. I know the pixel sizes can be worked out by multiplying the D.P.I. (96) by the inch dimensions of the inserts but using the external screen ruler is less taxing on the brain. :)

The method falls down a bit if the work in progress doesn't fit on the screen and needs zooming out in order to see it (some inserts are full A4 size in portrait). Although the image size zooms out, the ruler of course stays the same. However this can be overcome by setting the project at exactly 50% zoom and then halving the ruler measurement. For example: An 11.8" x 8.2" size project zoomed out to 50%, then measures 5.9" x 4.1" on the screen ruler but still prints at 11.8" x 8.2".

Another handy thing was to make a couple of blank canvas/paper sizes of A4 size. One landscape, one portrait. When used as templates, these give a good basis for drawing the inserts. The canvas can be trimmed once the card insert size has been set using the screen ruler.

Is there a better way?
