Exact size of a rectangle....

Recommended Posts

I am trying to draw a rectangle with the width of 2,00 cm. But i get either 2,01 och 1,98 cm when handling the draggable control nubs. Is there any way to write in the size i want with figures or another way to fix this?

Just zoom in with the zoom-control in the right down corner and then fine tune the size not by mouse-dragging but by using the arrow keys of your keyboard, while holding the pressed left mouse button on the control nub.

Thank you both. But I did not get it work. The zoom-control shows 100 %. And the size is movable with the arrow-keys as you suggested. But not to 2.00 cm.  Only 1.98 or 2.01 or higher. alt. lower. I cannot move it 0.01 cm at a time. More tips?

Elis tip works definitely. Maybe you've misunderstood.

 

You have to create a new image or change the existent by size and change in the option window the RESOLUTION (pixel / inch resp. pixel / centimeter) to 100 (standard is 36,80px/cm or 96px/in). Otherwise there's no 1:1 relation between millimeters and Pixels.
