When creating flipchart pages, it is often useful to be able to automatically align objects to a grid. There are lots of different types of layout grid availble in ActivStudio, all of which can be found in the resource library.
To access background grids from the resource library, click on the Library icon in the flipchart navigation toolbar.
The library browser window will appear somewhere on the screen:
Before you do anything else, make sure the Library Browser window is fully expanded. You can do this by clicking on the arrows at the top of the window:
Now click the icon for the Shared Resource Library, then click on the Shared Grids icon.
A wide variety of backgrounds can be selected from the explorer panel on the right, including squared grids, isometric grids, patterns of dots, graph paper and musical staved notepaper.
Any of these grids can be used for aligning objects, but the basic squared layout is by far the most useful. To find square grids you will need to select X-Y Lined in the explorer panel.
Once you have selected a grid you want to use, simply drag it onto your flipchart page using the mouse.
