Chapter 3. DISPLAY OPTIONS > Working with Grids

Working with Grids

I grew up using guides, but then I discovered the power of FreeHand’s grids. Grids are much more powerful and versatile than guides. If you change your design, grids are much easier to modify than guides. You can also use one object to be the starting point of the grid for other objects.

To view the document grid:

  • Choose View > Grid > Show. If you choose Show when it is checked, you turn off the grid.

    TIP

    Although the grid is displayed as dots 18, the actual grid is created from lines that intersect those dots. So the grid is active along the lines that connect the dots 19.

    Figure 18. The Document Grid is displayed as dots evenly spaced along the page.


    Figure 19. The actual grid is a series of lines that connect the dots of the visible document grid.
