When designing my prototype, I am using global guides to create a 12 column grid to align elements. After the prototype is completed, I will be sharing my prototype with our developer. Is there any way for me to share and show my grid layout that I created using global guides with him? I didn’t see an option in the Axure 9 inspect feature, but maybe I missed it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I would think a simple page note could suffice for devs, describing the properties of your grid (“There is a 12 column layout grid, each column is 120 px wide.”) In my experience, devs just need to see this once in a style guide or screen layout example.
Or, for a visual solution you could create a kind of “grid overlay” by placing line widgets at the guide locations, then grouping them or creating a dynamic panel. Give the devs some affordance for showing/hiding this “grid group” via a button or keyboard key. If needed for multiple pages, turn it into a Master and include the button and/or Page Key Up event in the master.
Great idea about the visual solution. I have used that for other spec information in the past before the inspect functionality was available. Don’t know why that didn’t cross my mind for the grids. Thanks for the help!
