Grid Lines don't appear

    by ideaman4u » Wed Mar 12, 2014 1:29 pm

I setup Preferences for showing grid lines, but they don't seem to appear. What am I doing wrong?

Furthermore, grid settings don't seem to work in the schematic. That is, the grid does not seem to change. Again, what am I doing wrong?

You must also make sure that the Grid option is visible and Grid lines selected to see the grid lines.

In v5.1 the grid has been exposed in the edit panel for both layout and schematic. Setting the grid on the schematic side only works for drawing objects and placing text. Pins placement and wire routing is on a fixed .1" grid.

One item to mention is that the grid shifts back to the default on schematic when you place a part or begin routing a wire.
