In Excel under page view you can select the ruler so you can layout your page correctly. I can't find it in Calc.

In Calc Open the spreadsheet choose Tools > Options(Alt+F12) > LibreOffice Calc > General. Here you can set measurement unit ie. inch, metric, points or pica then Grid will allow you to set Resolution Horizontal and Vertical size plus adjust subdivision spaces

(Edited correct shortcut key).

+1 for this answer. NB. the above answer requires checking "Visible grid" in "Options > LibreOffice Calc > Grid".

To check coordinates in the Status bar, use the Arrow Select tool from the Drawing toolbar.

Hi @tmc365

Calc does not offer this feature. A request had been made but it was closed for lack of precision.

It seems to me that FilePrint Preview▸click Margins corresponds most to what you are looking for (adjust page, columns, layout...) but without displaying the numbers.
