Align objects to a grid in Adobe Illustrator

Explore Deke’s Techniques at lynda.com.

Learn how to use Illustrator’s grid to create a diagram where all the elements are precisely aligned. This week in Deke’s Techniques, Deke shows you how to modify the size and subdivisions of the grid by tweaking your preferences and resize the artboard to match the new grid. Then he shows how to draw flowchart elements with the Rectangle tool and use the Snap to Grid command to precisely align them. Click the free video below to get started.


lynda.com members can watch the two follow-up videos in the training library to learn how to finish off the diagram. Deke will be back in a week with the next free video, where he shows how to draw the Pen tool icon—without ever using the Pen tool itself.
