Chapter 2. DOCUMENT SETUP > Using the Document Grid

Using the Document Grid

Ruler guides are terrific for inserting at variable positions. If you need guides at repeated intervals, you should use Fireworks's document grid. The grid can also be used to align objects.

To view the document grid:

  • Choose View>Grid to display the document grid 21. You can use the grid to arrange your images into certain areas, or to make sure objects are aligned, or are the same size.

    Figure 21. The document grid shown over the art.


    Tip

    You can use View>Grid Options>Snap to Grid to have objects automatically snap, or align, to the grid.

    Tip

    When Snap to Grid is turned on, objects snap to the grid even if the grid is not visible.

    You can also change the size of the grid. This makes it easy to create many different buttons or other objects that are all the same size or shape.
