I would appreciate a page that you can print out which just has
as many empty 9x9 grids, divided in houses as can fit on an A4.

Thanks very much,
Laura Creighton

I can easily make a program to do that.

Since the advent of windowsXP ive been having a terrible time with printers.

They took out the print utility and the printers I have that go to the top of the page to tear off never go back down. windows is meant to feed dumb printers that copy pixels. real printers that have fonts just dont work anymore. The New printers that cost less than the ink cartriges and have single sheets are generally ok with windows as long as you can tell the program you use to ignore the headers and footers and just print useful content.



anyway back to the subject :

paper is sized to the golden ratio.

it may be folded/cut in half and maintain the same ratio and shape

A0 is 34x44 Inches (USA)
A4 is 4 foldings 8.5x11 Quatro
A8 is 8 folds 2x3.5 actually 2.125x2.75

A standard printer Made for usa only will take this A4 paper and print a page on it.

Most of the printers people can buy are universal so they take metric paper too even folds in even cm rather than inches.

To pull the paper thru the printer you generally hold the edges so there is usually some sort of unprintable edge . photo printers will usually go to the edge.


A page that you can print out which just has
as many empty 9x9 grids, divided in houses as can fit on an A4.


34x44 grids will fit. but can you write digits in them?

get a sudoku book most are A5 and open to A4
the answers in the back open to 3x4 12 grids on A4
These are smaller than quadrille graph paper (1/4" squares)

a practical size may be 2x3 6 grids 3/8" squares

most of the sudoku books have 2 grids on the A4
1/2" squares, room for pencilmarks...

just a click away:
