Layout Grid needs to have the ability to create an 8pt grid with rows
It's frustrating that you only have the ability with Layout Grid to create columns. horizontal 8 point grids are becoming a big thing with UI design. XD needs to have that capability. Until then I will have to stick with Sketch.
The feature name is “square grids” – more information can be found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/artboards-grids.html#grids Does this address your need?
yes, you can create an 8pt square grid very easily. However, It's almost pointless since you can't adjust the Nudge. It is only 1 or 10. That's a huge pain. considering that should be something that should be in XD Preferences. This is something that should be considered pretty low hanging fruit that XD should have already figured out and released.
I'm not sure what "artboard grids" are nor how to use them (even after doing an internet search). I know I can create individual guides but that is one line at a time, definitely not helpful.
