Grid dialog is shown when Grid is activated from the View toolbar or by activating Editor or Digitizer layout. Grid dialog contains tools that affect grid appearance.

User can choose the distance between vertical grid line using the slider on Grid X or by entering the value manually. To change the distance between horizontal lines, Grid Y slider or text input is used. To hide grid horizontal / vertical lines user can tick the checkbox next to the Show X or Show Y.
When grid is displayed, it can be shown in front of the object or behind, depending on the setting in the Grid Dialog. Grid lines can be Solid or Dotted.
