Changing the color of the grid points

The default grid dots are light gray, which can be hard to see. To improve visibility, go to Tools > Options, then > Appearance.

Changing the grid color

In the Drawing / Presentation section, you can change the color of the grid points. On the Color Settings pulldown menu, select a more suitable/visible color, for example black.

Positioning objects with helper lines

To simplify the positioning of objects it is possible to make visible guiding lines—extensions of the edges of the object—while it is being moved. These guiding lines have no snap function.

The guiding lines can be (de-)activated under Tools > Options > Draw > View > Guides when moving, or by clicking on the Image:GuidesIcon.png icon on the Options toolbar.
