Allows you to modify the size, appearance, and behavior of the grid that appears when you move an object with Snap to grid checked in Build Tools.

Grid Units (meters)   Sets the distance between grid lines. Measured in meters.
Grid Extents (meters)   Sets the size of the visible white grid when dragging the red/green/blue positioning widgets instead of an axis arrow, centered on the object you're editing. Measured in meters.
Snap to sub-units   Divides the grid into smaller sub-units for greater precision. The number of sub-units depends on how closely your camera is zoomed in and goes up to 16 divisions between main Grid Units. Edited objects snap to these sub-unit lines the same way they do to a normal grid line.
View cross-sections   Displays a visible plane in the center of the object you are editing, oriented orthogonally to the axis the object is moving on. This plane extends into adjacent objects to aid precision alignment.
Opacity   Sets how transparent the grid appears. Move the slider left to make the grid more transparent, or move the slider right to make it more opaque.
