The Grid Tool places Grid lines over a Plan to make it easier to align symbols when designing.

Enable the Grid Tool

  3. Set the Scale
    On a Snipped Plan, the Grid selection will only appear once the Scale has been set
  4. Enter Width and Height of the Grid
    The default unit of measure is metre (enter 1 or 1m)
    Other accepted units of measure are millimetres, centimetres, feet and inches
  5. Click Enable Grid
    To hide or edit the Grid size, click Hide / Change Grid
💡 Grid is static

Use click, hold and drag / zoom options to align Plan against the Grid

Q: Can I stop the Grid from "moving" when I zoom in on my Plan?

A: No. The Grid Tool adjusts to match the Scale of the Plan when zooming. Zoom to the required level and then move the Plan to align with the Grid. Ideally, line up one room at a time on the Plan.

💡 Lock Plan Panning

Press ALT (⌥ OPTION) + L to prevent the Plan from being moved with the mouse click and drag gesture. Unlock by using the same keys.

Q: Will the Grid be included when I export my Plan?

A: No. The Grid will not show on Exported Plan/s. This is an onscreen feature only.
