    Hello,

    What's the difference between Papier Millimétré and Papier pour Graphiques?

    Are they the same thing? When is one used and the other is not?

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi, JHughes,
    in papier millimétré, the base unit is the millimeter. I went to your site and checked out the graphic paper images, they are not papier millimétré, just papier pour graphiques.

    Thank you very much for your help egueule.

    So “papier millimeter” is a subset of “papier pour graphiques” that uses the metric scale?

    I’m flattered you went to my site, but I’m confused. I have graph paper on my site in both metric and inch based side by side, but you say they are not papier millimétré, just papier pour graphiques. Wouldn’t it be a combination of both of them, or because I have inch based papers aswell, that would automatically make the page papier pour graphiques.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Maybe I looked at the wrong ones, I'm going back to check.

    Ok, as far as I know, only your 1mm Cartesian Graph paper qualifies as papier millimétré.
