Package gridset
Copyright (c) Markus Kohm, 2008
Licence: LPPL
Version: 2008/11/12 v0.1
This package provides commands to save positions to and restore positions
from aux-file.  This may be used for grid setting (aka strict in-register
setting).  The package needs pdfTeX at least version 1.40.
If you have a distribution of gridset with an archive containing the files


you may simply extract this archive at your local texmf tree (local TDS tree)
that may be e.g. C:\localtexmf or /usr/local/share/texmf or
/usr/TeX/texmf-local.  On some systems you may ask for the local TDS tree
using: `kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFLOCAL'. After extraction you should update
your File Name DataBase e.g. using the MiKTeX Options dialog or texhash.

If the files are at a root directory gridset the distributor has changed my
original distribution archive and you have to copy the files yourself into
the appropriate directories at one of your texmf trees and update your File
Name DataBase.

If you instead of this have only the files gridset.dtx, README, and
gridset.pdf (optional), you have to call:
   tex gridset.dtx
and follow the instructions.

- If you only want to test gridset without installation, you may simply use
  a copy of gridset.dtx renamed to gridset.sty.
- README is not a user documentation file, but only needed until 
  installation has been done.  Because of this, I declare it to be a 
  source file.  Nevertheless distrbutors may install it as an additional 
  documentation file.

grid­set – Grid, a.k.a. in-reg­is­ter, set­ting

Grid set­ting — also known as strict in-reg­is­ter set­ting — is some­thing, that should be done for a lot of doc­u­ments but is not easy us­ing . The pack­age helps to get the in­for­ma­tion needed for grid set­ting. It does not im­ple­ment auto grid set­ting, but there is a com­mand \vskip­nextgrid, that moves to the next grid po­si­tion. This may be enough un­der some cir­cum­stances, but in other cir­cum­stances it may fail. Thus grid­set is only one more step for grid set­ting, not a com­plete so­lu­tion.
