Hi, I have been trying to figure this out with no success.  How do I change the units of the “Snap to” grid?  I would like it to work in finer units but it seems to only want to work in very large increments.

Can anyone help?  TIA

Snap to grid?
Are you referring to the rulers(the red/green lines that show when, for example, drawing a line)? You can change the snapping distance on those while they are active, by pressing the +/- keys on the num pad.

I thought he meant points or objects, like you can in most apps but couldn’t figure a way to do it in Hex. I always type in coordinates if I’m trying to size something, which is the only reason I can think to to that.

Thinking about it that way, by changing to relative instead of absolute you can move any fraction of a unit you want.
