Snap items to the grid

The Tracks area includes a grid that helps you align regions, automation points, and other items with the time divisions in the ruler. When you perform any of the following actions and Snap to Grid is turned on, the items move to the next position on the grid:

  • Moving and resizing regions

  • Moving the playhead

  • Adjusting the cycle region

  • Dragging loops to the Tracks area

  • Moving automation points in automation curves

The grid value depends on the current zoom setting.

Turn the Tracks area grid on or off

  • Choose Edit > Snap to Grid.
