This will adjust how much you can "see through" the grid.


This setting lets you define the density of the Crosshatch grid for achieving the desired amount of granularity.
You can have 2x2 <to> 9x9 equal portions on the grid.

Crosshatch - Quick Start

‘Add New Tool’ and navigate to Frame > Crosshatch and select to add it to the current page.

Once the Crosshatch is added you can edit the settings by navigating right when ‘Crosshatch’ is highlighted.

The pattern is going to be a 1:1 in sections.  So if you want a 3x3 (rule of thirds) it will give you 3 wide by three high which is 9 equal squares in total.
