Using the Grid

The grid on the Design Canvas is a useful tool to organize, align, and snap design elements in place. Use the grid to define the layout of your project early on in the design process to produce spatially even and consistent looking projects. 

Step 1:
From the design canvas locate the top toolbar and hover over the last icon with three dots.

Step 2:
Click on Show Grid to apply the grid to the canvas. To remove the grid, select Show Grid once more. When the grid is applied, the canvas will have a purple tint. This tint will not appear on your final project, and is only intended to help you see the grid more easily. 

Step 3:
With the grid applied to the canvas, select Lock to Grid. Moving items on the canvas with Lock to Grid applied will bring objects to the closest intersection of the grid. Use this tool to align items at their center, top, or bottom most point.

Step 4:
Hover over Grid Size to use the slider to adjust the spacing of the grid. The Grid Size selected using the slider indicates the number of rows that will appear for the grid. As the number of the Grid Size increases the sensitivity of the Lock to Grid setting will increase.
