Email has been staple of our lives for over two decades, and yet many of us still struggle to manage it.

GraphPaper es una buena página en la que pueden generarse decenas de retículas en PDF a partir de decenas de modelos básicos: líneas, cuadrados, triángulos, hexágonos… Así como otras más exóticas como son las circulares, el «papel logarítmico», diseños en perspectiva y demás.
Se pueden simplemente elegir, descargar e imprimir o bien generar modificando los detalles: tamaño de la hoja/PDF, color, grosor de las líneas, dimensiones de los patrones… interesante para crear ese tipo de papel que nunca se tiene a mano (ah, ¡esas retículas hexagonales para crear juegos de tablero!) y que pueden venir muy bien en muchas ocasiones.
