Designer - add 12 grids with margins within type area

Recommended Posts



I have got a simple question concerning the grid system.

I would like to create a 12 grid system with margins on an artboard.

I found the margin settings of the document and also the grid system which works fine.


But how can I set up these 12 grids only within the "type area" and not until the end of the whole artboard? (I am usually a printdesigner but would like to learn more about UI/UX Design).


Thank you so much for your help!



Best regards

Thank you bgarrant, I also setup my webdesign this way now to test Affinity Designer.

But to be honest without a simple feature like adding 12 grids with XX space between them in a type area this program is not suitable for designing websites in my opinion :/

Let's see how Adobe Xperience Design looks like.
