Setting a reference grid

You can display a reference grid consisting of a regular pattern of dots. This grid is similar to drawing on a sheet of nonreproducing grid paper. Although the reference grid is visible on the screen, it does not print as part of the drawing, nor does it affect where you can draw.

The reference grid extends only to the limits of the drawing, helping you to visualize the boundary of your drawing and to align entities and visualize distances between entities. You can turn the grid on and off as needed. You can also change the spacing of the grid at any time.

To turn the grid on and set the grid spacing

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Drawing Settings.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Drawing Settings tool ().
    • Type settings and then press Enter.
  2. Click the Coordinate Input tab.
  3. Under Change Settings For, choose Snap And Grid.
  4. Under Reference Grid, click the Show Grid check box.
  5. Under Reference Grid Spacing, in the X field, choose the horizontal grid spacing.
  6. Under Reference Grid Spacing, in the Y field, choose the vertical grid spacing.
  7. Click OK.

TIP To toggle the grid display on and off at any time, double-click the GRID setting on the status bar, click the Reference Grid tool () on the Settings toolbar, or press F7.
