Configuring the grid

The color, spacing, and resolution of the grid points can be individually chosen for each axis.The spacing between the lines is defined in the Grid options dialog under the Drawing area of the OOo options (Tools > Options > Draw > Grid). In the dialog shown below, you can set the following parameters:

  • Vertical and horizontal spacing of the dots in the grid. You can also change the unit of measurement used in the general Draw options (Tools > Options > Draw > Grid > General).
  • The resolution is the size of the squares or rectangles in the grid. If the resolution is Horizontal 1cm, Vertical 2cm, the grid consists of rectangles 2cm high and 1cm wide.
  • Subdivisions are additional points that appear along the sides of each rectangle or square in the grid. Objects snap to subdivisions as well as to the corners of the grid.
  • The pixel (pix element) size of the snap area defines how close you need to bring an object to a snap point or line before it will snap to it.
