  1. I am trying to create a complex responsive grid to easily work with bootstrap mockups: - grid centered to artboard - maintain constant gutter of 30px (no issues there) - limit grid to 12 main columns - set y axis grid to 32pt (or whatever lineheight I need for my type rythm, independent of gutter) I know this is a very specific setup, and there are templates out there with column groups that approximate this, but even those aren't resizable, and you have to make a new group for every page, just tedious. Would love to set up some pre-programmable and responsive guides for different situations, and just select the guide I need for whatever project. Just as a reference, Sketch seems to be able to do this quite nicely: https://medium.com/@petehouston/setup-twitter-bootstrap-grid-in-sketch-f6e69eab95c2 They have split this functionality out from the grid system into a layout system that has snapping behavior, in addition to the grid system. This way I can make the columns according to bootstrap grid layout, and the actual grid set to my type-face's baseline for vertical rhythm. Thanks for listening
  2. In the help topic Grids for both Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo, there is the following: To create a fixed angular grid: From the View menu, select Grid and Axis Manager. Uncheck Use automatic grid. Select Advanced. From the Grid type pop-up menu, select Two axis custom. Set the Angle of either axis. Click Close. As far as I can tell, there is no "two axis custom" grid choice anywhere in the Grid & Axis Manager, just the two axis presets like isometric, diametric, etc. So how do we set two axis custom angle grids? While I am on the subject, I know there was a post somewhere that explained how to enable the "Up axis" but I can't find it now. Anybody know anything about that?
  3. How to increase Grid line thickness - Affinity Photo The Grid lines are too thin for me. In Develop Persona I Show Grid and the open Grid and Axis Manager but I don't see a way to increase Grid line thickness. Can this be done and how?
