    Yes, I HAVE googled this.

    For some reason, my Hammer won't decrease it's grid size. It's stuck on a tiny value (I needed to move something precisely) and it's really annoying when I'm working zoomed out far.
    It used to work...

    It doesn't increse it either. It's stuck on that size. I've tried restarting Hammer, my computer...none of it works.

    Has anyone encountered this problem before and can help?

    What grid size is it stuck on? It says in the lower right corner in the status bar. Or I'm wondering if it's actually stuck at all, by default grid smaller than 4 pixels is "hidden" so if you are at a wide zoom level the grid won't visually change until a few steps up.

    Make sure to have the setting to snap to the grid on. If you havent everything will move like it was on a grid of 1.

    If you want to move something without it snapping to the grid hold down the ALT key while moving the object. As for the grid issue I don't know, but when I'm zoomed out it looks like big squares but moves fine for me (I tend to leave everything on the smallest setting for the grid and make sure EVERYTHING is aligned with the grid to prevent leaks and such.
