Create a Grid Style

To create a new Grid style, let’s start by creating a new frame and go to Layout grid section and add new Grid.

  • Next, select your grid element to open the Layout grid’s settings modal.
  • Select the Grid menu and choose Column in the left corner of the grid modal.

Next, add the following Grid settings:

Count: 6

Type: Stretch

Gutter: 20

  • After that, hit the four dots icons in the Grid section to trigger the grid styles modal.
  • Click the + icon in the right corner of the Grid styles modal.
  • Let’s give our style the name of Grid Style 1 then hit Create style button.

You can create as much styles as you want.

Apply a Grid Style to a layer

To apply a Grid style to a new frame, select your frame and head to the Grid section in the right-hand sidebar.

  • Hit the four dots icon in the right corner of the Grid section to trigger the styles modal, then select Grid styles 1 to apply the style to your frame layer.

Edit a Grid Style
