If you’re wondering “how do I get rid of the grid in Design Space” then don’t panic – it just takes three clicks of your mouse to remove them!

I’m using Cricut Design Space Beta v5.4.10 for this tutorial.

1) – Click the “hamburger icon” on the top left of your screen. This looks like three little rectangles, sat one-on-top of each other.

2) – Click “Settings” in the menu which has just appeared.

3) – Click the circle buttons under the “Canvas grid” heading to toggle grid line settings.

The “Partial grid” option is a middle ground between the other two options. It removes the smaller grids and just leaves the larger squares.

When you’re happy with your select, click the “X” icon in the top right of the “Design space settings” popup.

Repeat the same steps again to change your grid settings at any time.

If you’re using the Design Space mobile app then the gridline function is accessed slightly differently.

1) – Swipe right along the bottom row of icons until you can see the “Settings” button. It’s the last one in the list. Tap the “Settings” button.

Why does Cricut Design space have grid lines?

Grid lines can be useful to help you line up elements of your design on the Canvas. It’s also helpful to get a better idea of the size of project you are working on.

However, it can be easier to see the images you are working with if you turn those guides off.

It’s really just up to your personal preference of how you prefer to work.

Happy crafting,
Sarah
