Step and Repeat Errors

I am trying to use step and repeat to quickly build a grid with specific sizes in between frames. 

 

Every time i use step and repeat command and select 'Create as grid' the grid is created with a duplicate of the frames ontop of each other. 

 

To clarify the grid is built correctly but there is a double of each grid frame.

Hi @Guidovanhelten , Just to clarify, are you starting with a single object selected?

It doesn't work that way. Delete the second frame, then set the horizontal offset to the frame width plus gap you want.

Another way to deal with this, if horizontal and vertical spacing are to be equal, is to use the Gridify feature when drawing the frame. As you draw, hit the left-right arrow keys to add horizontal duplicates and the up-down keys for vertical. Spacing will be what you have set for gutter width in Document setup.

I'm not personally fond of this method as it's harder to control the size of the object you draw, but many users find it useful.
