I have my artboard set up to represent a playing field which is measuring at 140 meters by 81m. I currently have my artboard set at 140cm by 81cm. Is there a way I can use the rectangular grid tool in Adobe Illustrator to split my artboard into 1662 even sections? Rectangles or squares, as long as they are even sizes
