Inkscape - Grid

Inkscape Layout


A Grid is a set of horizontal and vertical lines that provide a guide for drawing objects.

Optionally, objects will snap to a Grid when being drawn or moved, enabling accurate drawing.

A Grid will not show when the drawing is printed or exported as a bitmap.

The default Grid has minor divisions every pixel and major divisions every 5 pixels.
