Grid problems - how to adjust the grid size ...

Recommended Posts


I'm working now on a project with canvas size A4 (5600x4200)

i'm working with large objects and small objects each in its own layer.

i wanted to align few object in a certain way and i wanted to use the grid

for this.

however the grid is so small and can only be seen using 66% and more zoom in.

which makes it impossible to align the object since i can't see all of them


is there any way to adjust the grid to be in proportion to the correct

zoom or not window ?

as a workaround i found is the grid plugin , but with it i must recreate the grid for each

zoom size and its hard to work like this.

having the grid adjusted automatically or at least allow max/min setting for it so it can be seen

in an A4 size canvas.

would be great help.

It's not an adjustable grid. It's only meant to give a grid for pixel editing, which is why it's called View -> Pixel grid.

Solution is what you've already found -- using a plugin or something to create an extra layer that has the grid you need.
