cuadrícula de ajuste

Standard Microsoft Word vocabulary. In MS Word Spanish version, "grid" is translated as "cuadrícula". And MS Word help in Spanish uses the word "ajustar" as an equivalent for "snap".

In the text provided, the term is acting as a noun, so it would be "cuadrícula de ajuste". OR a verb form could be used as "ajustar a cuadrícula" which in English would be "snap to grid". Note that the command "snap to grid" in MS Word is not translated using a verb into Spanish, only as "Objetos a cuadrícula". But MS Word in Spanish uses the verb "ajustar"
