Here is a simply way to place drawing objects in just the right location eliminating approximation,or the guesssing game.

To create a grid in your document:

  1. Select Draw | Grid from the Drawing toolbar.
  2. In the Drawing Grid dialog box, select the Display Gridlines On Screen check box and click OK.

Customize your gridlines
You can choose how far apart to space your gridlines, and you can choose to remove the vertical lines if you’d like.

To adjust your gridline spacing:

  1. Select Draw | Grid from the Drawing toolbar.
  2. In the Grid Settings area, increase or decrease the numbers in the Horizontal Spacing and Vertical Spacing spin boxes. Smaller numbers create closely spaced gridlines, and larger numbers widen the gaps between gridlines.

To remove the vertical gridlines:

  1. Select Draw | Grid from the Drawing toolbar.
  2. Deselect the Vertical Every check box in the Grid Origin area of the Drawing Grid dialog box. Click OK.

Another Method for 200, 2010, and 2013
Change your grid settings by going to the Page Layout tab and in the Arrange group, click the Align button and choose Grid Settings from the resulting dropdown list. This choice opens the Drawing Grid dialog box. You can also quickly hide/show your gridlines by selecting or deselecting View Gridlines from the same dropdown list.
