Using Smart Guides with existing Counts on Plans

Currently, there is no ability to Edit an existing Count and use the Smart Guides. It is recommended to Delete the Count on the Plan and then replace to use Smart Guides.

Grid Tool with Smart Guides Enabled

Smart Guides can be used when the Grid Tool is enabled to:

  • Align all consecutive Counts, by automatically snapping to crosshairs of the Grid lines
  • Automatically snap to the centre of each line and centre space
