How do you size a chart's grid to be the same as the count per inch of your Aida cloth? I want to have a "real size" image for 14 count Aida cloth. The design is the right size, but the grid is much smaller.

Do you mean you want to "print" in real size?
If so, you can choose an option to do so in print preview setting.
Please take a look at the page: Print Preview and setup

I think "For cross stitch, usually this shouldn't check." should be "You usually won't have to check this for cross-stitch."
