'No installation, no macros - just a simple spreadsheet' - by Jon Wittwer


This Excel (.xls) file contains square grids of different sizes, triangular, and isometric graph paper.

Excel can provide a useful grid-based drawing canvas for landscape plans and simple architectural floor plans. Many people may not realize that the drawing tools in Office are basically the same in Excel, Word, and Powerpoint. In Excel, you can snap to the grid by holding the Alt key as you insert shapes and lines. You can also use another worksheet within the same workbook to do calculations.

Note: If you are just looking for printable graph paper, the Word (.docx) templates available on the new printable graph paper page provide more accurate measurements and aspect ratios.

Problem with the Excel Graph Paper Template

If you aren't concerned with exact scaling, Excel can be a pretty useful tool for creating simple floor plans, landscaping plans, Sudoku grids, and other stuff (see reference [1]). I have even used it to plan how I was going to load furniture into a moving truck.

The problem with the scaling is that Excel's column widths and row heights are based on pixels rather than printed dimensions (link inches or centimeters). It is possible to get pretty close to an inch scale using the Excel template by manipulating the pixel width and height of the columns and rows, and that is what I have done in the above graph paper template (and wasted a lot of paper in the process). However, if you want a more precise grid, use Word or Powerpoint to define a table with the cell widths and heights set to specific widths.
