    I have a Dell Optiplex 980 PC with OS Windows7. I have downloaded a grid in a pdf document ( basically triangles set in squares) there is a small square at the top of the document this is supposed to measure one inch on the screen; .this is to check the accuracy of the measurements when printed. It measures one and a half inches on my screen. I have saved it in word,in photoshop and as a pdf file but always the same problem so I am unable to print it correctly.Can you suggest a remedy.

    What you see on your screen is NOT what is printed .. ???????
    What are you printing that you need measurement accuracy ????

    The size that is printed is determined by the ppi (pixels per inch) of the Image .....
    .... The routine you are printing with .... And how you tell it to be printed ???
    If the attached Circle/Square does not look round and square .... Your Display settings are wrong.

    The "Default" Image size can be set in Photoshop (and others) but this does not control the way the image is displayed on you monitor. ..
    and it still can be printed any physical size in most print routines.

    What program are you printing with ???
