      A few years ago when I was writing for a local newspaper, they hooked me up with a free writing/office program called "Open Office", check it out, has everything that Microsoft Office programs have.

      Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.

        Yep, and still around. The reason I suggested it is that is by far the best free program out there...plus the entire suite, which replaces MS Office, Excell, Data Base, etc.. When MS Word started charging a lot, I went with the alternative...maybe in the '90s? It is the "workhorse" I use for most of my writing. Scrivener is best for writing books and stuff, although I have written a few in OO.

        Free is good.

          A bit late to the party, but inkscape has a measure function with a simple drop-down in the menu to select units. It is free, at least in Linux, haven't checked for Windows.

            Steev, can this be used to import a scanned pattern and enlarge it?

              I haven't spent much time with it,I just saw the measure function this morning when I was looking into what it can do. It does seem to have a transform menu with scaling as one of the options.
