Change Increments of Grid Measurements

For even more precision when aligning graphic objects, you can set the grid spacing in decimals of inches (or metric measurements if you have made that choice earlier).

  1. In the Grid and Guides dialog box, choose one of the options listed for a new measurement increment for the spacing.
    Type in a specific measurement in the Spacing: text box.
  2. Click the OK button to apply this setting and close the dialog box.
