    No, but its fairly easy to create yourself.

    Golden Ratio is 1.618 use that with the size of your document to keep cutting it up.

    11 height and the next line is 6.79851669 next is 4.20180265....

    you can quickly start to figure it out

    I've said too much already...they're monitoring this forum...:p



    Golden Sections are a mathematical/geometric way of examining proportions in design. I am not a "designer" as such, but I'm trying to use the principles to lay out a woodworking project, and was hoping to use Illustrator to make that easier. Basically, it makes use of certain proportions that are pleasing to the eye, and recurring in nature. Google it and I'm sure you'll see more detailed information than I have. I think Divine Proportions may be the same thing, or at least interrelated.
