Fill Pattern Scale

How do I calculate the pixels per inch I need for a custom sized map?

I have a 5' grid, on a 620' wide by high map. The slider bar for fill pattern scale just isn't graduated enough for it to look right. There has to be some kind of math I can do and then resize the png to that scale but I'm drawing a blank on how to figure it right now.


  • You can probably scale the original file as needed. If you need 120% of the original size, scale up the pattern file (down in /patterns) to 120% of the size.

    If you do modify one of the standard patterns, I'd recommend doing it on a copy of the file, because otherwise your changes might get reverted during an update.
