How Do You Snap to Grid in Figma?

Grids are an integral part of web design and Figma is no exception. Figma allows you to quickly and easily snap objects to a grid, which can be useful for creating consistent spacing between elements, aligning objects to a central point, and much more. This article will explain how to snap to grid in Figma.

1. Select the Object: The first step is to select the object you want to snap to the grid. You can select multiple objects by holding down the shift key while clicking them or by drawing a selection box around them.

2. Enable Grid Snapping: Once you’ve selected your object(s), click on the “Snapping” button in the toolbar at the top of the screen. This will open up a menu with several options that allow you to control how objects are snapped to the grid.

3. Adjust Grid Settings: In this menu, you can adjust settings such as the size of the individual grid blocks (i.e., how many pixels wide/high each block is), whether or not objects should snap when moved or resized, and whether or not objects should move in increments of one grid block when moved.

4. Snap Objects: Once you’ve adjusted your settings, all you need to do is move or resize your object(s). They will automatically snap into place according to your settings.


Snap-to-grid in Figma is an incredibly useful tool that makes it easy to create consistent spacing between elements and align them quickly. By following these steps, you can ensure that all of your design elements are perfectly aligned with each other and look professional.
