Control the position of objects on the canvas

The Section Designer provides several different ways of positioning objects on the canvas, such as snapping the objects to the grid. For more information, see the following paragraphs.

Control snapping to the grid

The grid is displayed as a series of small dots on the canvas. By default, the Section Designer views the grid when it starts.

Snapping items to grid allows you to create shapes that are at exactly the right spot on your canvas.

To control the current grid snap setting, click View > Snap to grid on drag.

Control angle snapping

When you rotate shapes, you can also limit the allowable rotations to multiples of 15° by selecting the Angle snap option. By default, the Angle snap option is selected when the Section Designer starts.

To control the current angle snapping setting, click View > Angle snap.
