Simple CorelDraw Question

I wish to draw and be able to print on a 8.5 x 11.0 sheet of paper. The drawing is a simple triangle that has the longest side on the bottom and has a length of 25 feet. I do know how to draw the triangle, but I do not know how to have my rulers show an object that is 25 feet wide AND still have my paper size at 8.5 x 11.0. I realize it is only a simple configuration problem that I must address before drawing, but I just can;'t come up with the correct combination. I am using CorelDraw X7.

I don't see what the rulers have to do with the object size.

Draw your triangle, then press F4 to see all the objects.

HTH,

Hi, I can try out your suggestion in a few hours. To answer your question as to why the ruler is important: When I place other objects inside the triangle I want to use the dimension tool to indicate their exact size in real life. All objects will be under 20 feet at their largest dimension. If the ruler does not show increments of up to the largest object then I cannot use the dimension tool to display correct dimensions. I am sure that I am missing something very basic here. I just don't know what it is. I am not a daily user of this software.
In your signature you write HTH. May I ask what that stands for?

Letter document, huge triangle, ruler shown in inches.
HTH is short for Hope This Helps.

I am sorry here. I obviously am not communicating well enough to be completely understood. I am going to stop trying and find another way of solving my problem.

Thanks for trying. I must be dense because I am not communicating obviously.
