Hello,
I am trying to realize a drawing at scale in excel but the points of shapes are not scalled corect vs A3 format.
A3 format is 29.7 cm and 42 cm. I set the printing on this format, landscape. Vertically i draw a line that is from 0 to 876 points to bottom( if bigger it does get out of the page in print preview and on printing lines in sheet) . Horizontaly the maximum line dimension without exiting of the page is 1152 points. But now 1152 divided by 876 is equal to 1.31 while 42 divided by 29.7 is 1.41..
So bassically i dont understand how to draw on a A3 size format while having the correspondance between line points dimension and real cm..

Thanks in advance.
