Love the grids, thanks for keeping them updated. There is an issue with the .zip file on Macs - it unzips too far and wrecks the .rp file. To fix all hosting issues with Axure files, put the .rp (or .rplib) file inside a folder, and zip the folder.
Hope that helps!
Thanks Loren. We've fixed it now and the same file works on both Macs and PCs.
Thanks for the great work. Unfortunately, if I put a grid in a master, it always overlays all elements. To place it in the background or the other elements in foreground - it does not help. Thanks for you answer.
I'm not sure how you're using the grids, but I don't have this problem. Drag the grid from the grid masters onto the new master page that you're creating, then you should be able to draw elements on top of it. Of course, you'll have to delete the grid when you've finished, or else it will appear in your design. If this doesn't help, please give me some more information about how you're using the grids so I can help you troubleshoot the problem.
Thanks for your answer. I tried it again, and well, now it looks like it's working... I don't know what I did wrong, but thanks for your help. :) Greets
I am having issues installing the grid on Pencil. I am getting an error message that says the file might be corrupt. Did anybody else have this experience?
I spoke to Frederic Vandaele, who created the grids for Pencil. He can reproduce the problem when he tries to install the zip as a 'collection'. Since it is not a collection but a Pencil file, you should unzip it locally and open it in Pencil via Document -> Open. It should work fine if you follow the installation instructions on the download page.
