    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks Sappy. I'll keep it in mind if my current subscription to MS Office ever goes on the blink!

    It was just a guess on my part but most programs are "versatile." I tried Scribus but my Open Office, Page Plus (paid) and Scrivener (paid) were a lot better. My writing Forums had a lot of people using LibreOffice but I didn't like it either. Guess we all have to adapt to the program that fits our brains the best.

    Woodburner,,,, If inches is an available option then it sure as heck is hidden, If anyone decides to use Scibus and finds that option I'd be happy to hear about it.
