set the gridSize to <number> Applies to global
The gridSize property determines the granularity of the snapToGrid property. The gridSize, which may be any positive floating-point number, sets the line spacing in terms of the current screen units (determined by the rulerStyle property). For example, if the rulerStyle is set to "inches", a gridSize of .5 means that the grid lines are spaced a half-inch apart. The default value of the gridSize is 5.
