I am working on a model in Arc Pro and am not seeing an option to snap items to a grid. I'm pretty sure this existed in ArcDesktop.

Does this functionality exist in Arc Pro?

Thank you,

Randy McGregor

Hi Randy!

Yep this functionality exists. In your map window in Pro, look for the Grid button at the bottom of the window, hover over it for the pop up window to appear and click on Grid Settings

 Then in the settings window ensure 'Snap to Grid' is ticked.

Let me know how you go :)

Thank you, but this appears to apply to the geographic space. I wasn't clear, but I was referring to model elements in the model workspace.

 

Thank you,

Randy

Sure thing. I found this existing article which  may have the answer to your question - https://community.esri.com/t5/geoprocessing-questions/layer-files-in-modelbuilder/td-p/542794

Angela, I don't see the relevance of this link to Randys question about snapping of individual model elements in Model Builder to the background grid in ArcGIS Pro.
