Default Grid on the Drawing Canvas?

Is it possible to put a grid on the canvas to position objects?

Yes. On the Drawing toolbar, choose Draw | Grid and check the box for
"Display gridlines on screen."

Default

You can cover the back of the drawing with charcoal, pastel or soft pencil, then run a stylus or anything hard but blunt (like a teaspoon handle) along the lines of the drawing on the front to transfer it. Tape or clip the drawing in place so it doesn't move as you're doing it.
