I understand that we can choose the sizes of the designs but is there a way to see the grid lines on the screen of the mat while we are designing?
On the top at the very right hand side of the screen there is a little grid. Click on that and you can set up your grid options (whether to show or not, size, colour of lines, etc.). You can also set the opacity of the "paper" so that the mat shows through. 3 buttons to the left of the grid button is the button for your page set up. Click on that and there is a slider bar under "Reveal Cutting Mat". That will allow you to see the grid of the mat through your paper.
