Join David Lee for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating views with gridlines, part of SketchBook Pro 2010 Essential Training.
In this lesson, I'll show you how to add views to a drawing using Sketchbook Pro.…Using layers, you can realign elements of a drawing, transfer your locations to…form a grid and create additional views.…To begin, let's open the techbunny.tif file.…Let's go to the top of the main menu, press File > Open and techbunny.…What we're going to do here is we are going to create layers to create our grid.…So let's go to the interface lagoon, Tools, and select Layers.…Now what we're going to do here is we're going to open a new layer, and we're…going to rename that.…
Let's go ahead and click that out to clear the image, Layer 2, and create GRID.…Let's go ahead and save that.…Let's go ahead and create one more layer, go ahead and clear that and call that…Layer 3 and we'll call that PROFILE.…I will now come back to that a little later and explain to you why I did that.…Now, let's go ahead and lock down the original layer and this will prevent us…from accidentally sketching over it and changing our original drawing.…

Q: The grid files the author uses in the course aren't included in the exercise files. Where can I find them?
A: The grid files are background template files that are provided with an Autodesk subscription, which comes with purchase of any Autodesk product, including Sketchbook Pro.
