All About the Alignment Palette

The Alignment Palette lets you turn an alignment grid on/off on your canvas to help with lining up your layers in relation to one another. Launch the palette by clicking the Settings icon (the wheel shape) in the bottom toolbar, then select Alignment.

Grid & Alignment tools:

  • Align & Snap: Toggle on (blue) to automatically snap text and objects into alignment on your canvas without showing grid lines. Toggle off to move the objects/text on your own. 

  • Show grid on canvas: Toggle on (blue) to place a visible alignment grid over your canvas. Choose from our preset sizes, or create your own grid that makes sense for your design using the Rows and Columns boxes.

  • Snap to grid: When you have grid lines showing, select this to automatically snap your text and objects into place.
