Grid Alignment for Forms

Hi Kyle,

When I’m sketching out forms with tables and buttons, I can’t decide whether the grid alignment should be on the left border edge of the table or button, or whether the grid alignment should be with the text inside the table or button.

What do you think?


@dsilver829 it depends…

But really decide what you think works for your design. General rule is that the harshest edge should be aligned to the grid. So if you have a button with a really light background and heavy text I’d align the text. If you have a button that has a dark background and reversed type, I’d align the background.
