Show & Hide Grid Lines


Recommended Posts

I've managed it before, but can't seem to find it now...

How do you control if the grid guidelines are visible? I know there's a checkbox somewhere...



Just figured out how to change the opacity of the lines to 0, but now curiosity just demands that I find that checkbox... Any help in my crusade greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I just spent 20 minutes looking for this. They certainly have done a good job of hiding it. "Smart cursor settings"? How counterintuitive is that?

There is actually an intuitive way: go to Tools>Set Grid... The snap cursor settings are just a short cut.

And, did you know that double-tapping a tool or snap button performs the same function as double-clicking it? Just his "aa" on the keyboard, and you get the Set Grid dialog.

Is the grid activated but just not showing?

There is a ‘display grid’ button on the top right of your drawing area. If it’s not showing click on the little arrows there and various preference options come up, one of which is to show the display screen button.

So the previous question still stands. Is it activated and just not showing or is it neither?

What are your Grid settings and page setup settings? The grid is confined to your page area so make sure you are zoomed to an area inside your page.

I activated it and am sending screen shot because still not showing up. Do I need to restart?

Or at least that's my understanding from the check on the top right that I sent in the previous message.

Also showing Smart Cursor where I have Snap Grid @ .5. I have zoomed in to be sure and see nada.
