Setting the Page Size

The page size determines the dimensions of the lesson, and the way it will be scaled.

It can be accessed from the Edit menu.

You can specify the size of the page in the Page size drop down.  You can also specify a custom page size and enter in the Page width and Page hieght fields directly.

The page size can be fixed, scaled proportionally, or it can be set to stretch to fit the screen.

Using the Grid

The Grid allows you to quickly and easily align objects by providing a visual cue by which you can measure the spatial relationship of objects and the page.

The Grid in use.

You can set the size, choose the color, set the visibility, and turn on or off snapping.

Snapping will make objects only move to vertexes of the Grid, which makes aligning objects easier.

Note: when using the Grid, holding down the <Control> key while using the arrows will allow you to move objects one pixel at a time.

Tips for using the Grid:

  • Vary the size of the grid depending on your work task.
  • Speed up creation time by using the snapping feature.
  • Plan object layout with page measurements.
