Customizing a Perspective Grid

If you create your own perspective grid, you save it as a preset for use later. You can create a perspective grid by using the Define Grid command to set exacting measurements and options or by manually adjusting an existing grid, and then saving it as a preset, which you can edit at any time. When you create or work with an existing perspective grid, you can set grid options to show or hide the active plane widget, change the widget position, and specify which points you want to use to temporarily hide the active plane with the Shift key.
