How do I tighten up the OSX Finder icon-grid?
Authored by: ihelp-mac on Apr 16, '04 04:38:29AM

I would also like to find out how to SET THE PREFERENCES for this invisible desktop "grid" that the various icons "snap" to.... In OS9.x you could set the grid to either "loose" or "tight"---I *assume* that there's some preference-file buried in the system or user Library that would allow for this sort of tweaking---I want MORE (large!) icons on my desktop

How EXACTLY is this sort of tweak done? (to make the grid incrementally tighter, so 128pix icons are "jam-fitted" on the desktop...???

HELP! (I'm not a programmer, and don't want to mess things up...)
--would be nice if Apple had a few more bells-and-whistles for the Finder System-Preferences... :-/

Did you ever find the answer to this? This is exactly why I came to macosx hints to try to figure out. I haven't been able to find anything on google.
