EnableGrid Cell (Page Layout Section)

Determines whether the application lays out shapes based on an internal, invisible page grid when you configure the layout in the Configure Layout dialog box. (On the Design tab, in the Layout group, click Re-Layout Page, and then click More Layout Options.)




Use the internal page grid.


Do not use the internal page grid.

You create this page grid by using the Space between shapes and the Average shape size values in the Layout and Routing Spacing dialog box. (On the Design tab, click the Page Setup arrow, click Layout and Routing , and then click Spacing .)

When you enable this feature, the application aligns each placeable shape's center point with the center of a block on the internal page grid.
