Should you have the need to create and print gridlines on paper, this single-purpose application fits the bill. The aptly named Paper Grid offers a simple interface with the grid display to the right of simple controls to specify grid size, page margins, and select the style, color, and width of the horizontal and vertical lines. You can preview and print your grid, though the trial version mars the output with several watermarks. No option to save the grids is offered. No Help file is included, though with Paper Grid's limited capabilities one is hardly necessary. You can evaluate the program for as long as you like, but you'll need to register to remove the watermark. Though it offers few features, Paper Grid does exactly what it promises to do, and anyone can use it.
