Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Establish a grid, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] When I created the document…I choose 12 columns,…and that's what we're looking at, our 12 column layout.…If we come to the view options…we can turn on a Grid Overlay highlighting those columns.…By itself I don't find that especially useful,…so I'm going to turn that off.…What we lack is anything like InDesign's ability…to create a baseline grid or to create a consisted…incremented ruling of horizontal lines.…Now if you're a web designer…you may just say, well get over it,…this isn't the world of print,…we can't line things up with quite the same precision.…
Well, maybe we can.…So I'm going to suggest, and it is just an optional thing,…that we create our own baseline grid.…It's not going to function so much as a baseline grid,…but it's just going to give us an incremented ruling of lines…to which we can more easily align stuff.…Now, of course, we have Smart Guides here…and you can see the Smart Guides kick in…when I move this gray rectangle…closer to the other two rectangles…you can see that pops up telling me…
