Grid

Sets options for the grid.

The grid display option must be checked from the view menu before these settings will be visible.

Grid Display

Displays a grid so that you can place elements with precision. The grid lines are not considered part of the document and do not print.

Grid Snap

Aligns elements with the grid. The grid is an invisible set of lines in the document that helps you align elements. When you set Grid Snap, elements always align with the grid lines or nearest intersection of the grid lines.

Grid Style

Changes the format of the grid lines to either static or dynamic. When you zoom in or out, the software dynamically generates the grid lines for a dynamic grid. You can set dynamic grid lines to appear at fine, medium, or coarse levels. The grid lines appear at common major measurement increments. A dynamic grid displays index lines that intersect with the darker, solid grid lines. A static grid displays solid grid lines that do not move as you zoom in or out. The grid maintains a constant minimum spacing.

Grid Index

Determines the number of index grid lines, also known as minor grid lines, to be equally spaced between the major grid lines. This option is available only if you select Static in the Grid Style list box.

Grid Spacing

Sets the spacing of the major grid lines. This option is available only if you select Static in the Grid Style list box. The selected options on the Units tab of the Properties dialog box determine the units that you can use, such as inches or centimeters.

You can open the Properties dialog box by clicking Properties on the File menu.

Grid Density

Changes the number of dashes in the index lines, or minor grid lines, between intersections with the grid lines. This option is available only if you select Dynamic in the Grid Style list box.

Sheet outline

Sets options for the outline of the drawing sheet.

Display

Displays the outline of a drawing sheet so you can view its boundaries.
