Enlarging Layout & Grid

You may want to modify your workspace to better suit your needs. You have a few option, which can be found in the main toolbar along the top of the editor.

Click the Enlarge Layout icon to enlarge or reduce the preview area to the optimum size for your screen. Clicking the button will provide a dropdown menu, with 5 different size options: Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, and Maximum – Layout Only.

Select the size that best fits the layout area on your monitor. Your selection will be saved and automatically used for future sessions with the software.

Once you have chosen a size, we recommend you click the Refresh button on your browser, as this is often required for the browser to fully update to the new size.

IMPORTANT! The Maximum – Layout Only size option may take time to load depending on the speed of your Internet connection. Maximum size is intended to be used only for detailed layout and alignment tasks, and does not provide full editing functionality, or show edge effects that have been applied to a photo.

Click the Show Grid icon to display a grid overlay on the page. Select 1/8”, 1/4” or 1/2” from the Grid menu to choose the spacing between the grid lines. Items will automatically snap to the grid as you move them.

Select 1/8” or 1/4” from the Snap menu to determine the grid increments to which the items will align.

Note that the snap increment you choose may be different than the grid spacing. When in the Extra Large layout view, you will have an additional option of 1/16” in the Snap menu. When in the Maximum – Layout Only view, you will have additional options of 1/16” and 1/32” in the Snap menu.

The smaller the snap size, the more control over fine details you will have.
