Step 3: You will be presented with several options to customize your grid. You can choose from pre-defined grids such as 8×8 or 16×16, or you can customize your own grid by setting specific columns, gutters and margins. Once you have made your selection, click ‘Apply’.

Step 4: To enable the grid for other objects in your project, simply repeat steps 1-3 for each object.


Enabling Grid in Figma is quick and easy. By following these four steps, you can create precise designs with exact measurements quickly and easily.
