Join Brian Thurston Bralczyk for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up grids and guides, part of UX Design Tools: Axure.
…Okay, we've got all our pages set up in the…site map pane and now we want to begin designing them.…But before we can start adding widgets and interactivity we should set…up some grids and guides that will help keep our design structured.…Let's make sure our homepage is open in…this center design area if you don't see home…in the top tab you just double click on this page to open it up over here.…And this design area is where we'll actually…be creating our layout, and placing the content.…So, this is where we're going to setup the grid.…
Right-click anywhere in the design area.…Go to this sub-menu for grid and guides, and let's choose Show Grid.…And you may have seen that there is a keyboard shortcut…there which is Cmd+' or Ctrl+' if you're on a Windows PC.…And that will toggle the grid on and off.…Now this grid helps when we start putting content widgets on to the page.…It's a way to visually line things up and place them at some exact intervals.…By default the grid shows as these little blue dots, and…they fall at the corners of ten pixel by ten pixel squares.…
