I feel like such a dummy. I'm stuck on step four. When I check the view-->grid, the grid is much bigger than yours. It doesn't have all the grid lines yours does. There's only like one and a quarter grid boxes height-wise & 8 and a quarter boxes width-wise. How do I get my grid to look like yours?
I tried to take a screen shot, but mine came out all blurry and the lines were hard to see at all. If you can tell me how you did your screen shots, I can give it to you if it'll help.
a huge thank-you to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my gorgeous siggy!
ok go to Edit , pref, grid and set it as Style-Lines, Grid Line- every 1 -pixels, subdivisions - 4 and heres a screen shot..... and how I take a screen shot is ctrl+alt+print screen and paste into a new photo and resize ! I hope that this has helped I am sorry I didn't get to you sooner! I am stealing one of your blinkys :-)
I Have Added this to the tutorial also!! Under step 4 for the rest of ya'll!
