Making Graph Paper Visible
Sometimes graph paper can make maps and plans easier to draw. A layer called "Graph Paper" is included in all new drawings, and by default it is not visible. To turn on graph paper, click to activate the “show” (eye) icon on the Graph Paper layer to make it visible.
Changing Graph Paper Settings in Drawing Setup
In Ortelius, the graph paper settings are based on the specified drawing units. The grid lines, number of divisions, and grid colors are adjustable under the File > Drawing Setup > Graph Paper menu. Graph paper is typically viewed underneath all other layers and can be set to be printed with the map or not.
Note: View > Snap To Grid and the ruler display is linked to the Graph Paper settings, even if the layer is not visible.
