View Options allows you to change how objects automatically align in your Project, as well as options to use a grid for precise object placement.

Inside the Editor window of your Project, click the menu icon located at the top-left corner and select View Options.

By default, the grid is set to OFF and Snap to objects is set to ON.

Many content creators appreciate having a grid available in the view of their design to help them align objects quickly and easily. To use and customize the grid, set Show grid to ON. There are pixel size options for Width and Height, as well as the ability to change the Opacity percentage. A higher opacity value will make the grid appear darker while editing.

To allow objects to be placed and aligned in accordance with the grid, set Snap to grid to ON.

When using the grid to place objects, it’s a good idea to use the Zoom slider in the bottom right of the editor to zoom in for precise placement.

Another Tip: Sometimes it’s helpful to group objects together for placement. Select multiple objects by clicking and dragging your cursor so the blue box selects many objects at a time, or select each object individually by using Shift+Click, then select Group from the top.

Select your object or group of objects and click and drag it to the precise spot, using the grid as a guide.

When finished, use the slider to zoom out to preview your overall changes in the editor.

To preview how the objects will appear to your viewers without the grid, click Present and review the final look. Your grid will not appear in your final project when you download or publish/share your project with your audiences. It is only visible within the Editor as you are working on your project.

To turn off the grid, return to the top-left menu, select View Options, and set Show grid to OFF. To return your Project to the default setting of Snap to objects, set it to ON.
