Origin of the canvas' grid
I have created a nice grid background emulating graph paper, which works well in most drawings. I have noticed that the 'origin' of the grid is the corner of the page.

However I have a few pages where I like total symmetry - all objects to be positioned and aligned relative to the center of the page, therefore I would like my grid to be centered as well. In other words, I want the major lines to intercept on the center of the page.

Any tips on how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

The grid origin is set in the Canvas>Size inspector, at the bottom of the panel. You can also drag the origin from the upper left corner, where the rulers meet.

There's no button to push to center the origin, but you could, with snap-to-grid on, center a small square on the canvas using the Alignment inspector, and then drag the origin to the center of the square. It will snap into place.
