Grid Layout

1) General Information

  • Arrange any type of object: rectangles, ellipses, polygons or even text.
  • Objects need to be inside a group for Arranger to do its magic.
  • If they are not inside a group Arranger will create a group for you.

2) Columns

  • Set the number of columns you need. Rows will be calculated automatically.
  • Lowest number is 1 which equals to 1 column layout. Zero and negative numbers are not available.
  • Pro tip: If you want to achieve a single row set the columns to the count of objects (e.g. if you have 10 objects than a column count of 10 will result in a single row).

3) Gutters

  • Gutter defines the horizontal and vertical spaces between objects.
  • Width = horizontal space. Height = vertical space.
  • Pro tip: use negative values to achieve overlapping objects.

4) Random Order

  • Right now this is an experimental feature. With this the order of objects will be randomized.
  • If you uncheck it then it will reset to your default order defined by layers.
  • Note: The new random order is just „virtual“. This real order in layers if not affected.
