What are Repeat Grids?
Repeat Grids are a powerful feature in Adobe XD that allows you to create a group of elements and repeat them in a grid format. This tool is particularly useful for designing interfaces with lists or grids of items, such as a product catalogue or a list of blog posts.
Repeat Grids allow you to quickly and easily create a layout that is consistent across all of your designs. You can easily adjust the spacing and alignment of your elements, making it easy to create a design that is both visually appealing and user-friendly.
How to use Repeat Grids
To create a Repeat Grid in Adobe XD, simply select the elements that you want to repeat, and then click the Repeat Grid icon in the toolbar or use the keyboard shortcut Command + R (Mac) or Ctrl + R (Windows).
Once you have created a Repeat Grid, you can adjust the spacing between the elements by dragging the handle in the middle of the grid. You can also adjust the padding and margins of the elements by clicking on the padding or margin indicators that appear around the Repeat Grid.
To add or remove elements from the Repeat Grid, simply drag and drop elements from your assets panel or from your artboard into the grid. You can also adjust the size of the elements by dragging the handles that appear around each element.
Advanced features of Repeat Grids
In addition to the basic features of Repeat Grids, Adobe XD also offers several advanced features that can further enhance your design process.
For example, you can use Repeat Grids to create responsive designs that automatically adjust to different screen sizes. To do this, simply create a Repeat Grid and then select the Responsive Resize option in the Property Inspector.
You can also use Repeat Grids to create nested grids, which allows you to create more complex layouts with multiple levels of elements. To create a nested grid, simply select a group of elements within a Repeat Grid and then click the Repeat Grid icon.
