graph paper background.
If I had it, I could create more accurate pages for design layout reflecting realworld measurements. As an example. I am working on a project to design a property for a non-profit, where building dimensions set in lot dimensions need to be accurately reflected. It's hard to create facilities when I am guessing at the footprint of buildings on exactly sized land. With graph paper, real paper, and/or a ruler and protractor, I can make drawings reflect space...why can't this program have a graph paper background setting so I can do the same? I did see a ruler option, but it also appeared to be an unmovable graphic, not a ruler I could manipulate for measurements. I don't want or need to go out and buy a graphic design program, because I don't do this often, and only play around with the ones I already created. Simply adding a graph paper background option would greatly increase functionality of the program. Thank you

If you format background on a slide, there is a pattern that is grid lines,. If they are too small you can choose an image as a background and either upload one you've saved or choose one from a Bing search right in PowerPoint.
If you go to the View tab there are checkboxes for gridlines and grids. if you need them in a certain dimension click the little box in the lower right-hand area of the "Show" area and you can set the dimensions in the pop-up window.

I have been looking for graph papers in PPT 365. Any possibilities of including them?
