Default Change Grid Line Spacing in Photo Shop

Does anyone know if there is a way to change the grid spacing in Pro Tools? There are currently a million videos on how to snap to grid or not snap to grid, how to turn absolute and relative grid on/off, but it seems like no one is explaining how to change the grid spacing.

I'm doing a new song which tempo is 12/1 (12 spaces per bar). I have been trying to eyeball it, because the default grid setting is 16/1 (16 spaces per bar). But syncing instruments with the grid currently in the default setting is a nightmare and you can easily hear how the instruments are not synced. Help!!!

Have you tried changing the meter to 3/4?

Grid spacing is usually selected between note values(like quarter note, eighth note, etc). Then meter would be selected as a time signature such as 4/4, 3/4, 6/8, etc). I suggest hitting youtube and watching some tutorials on getting started with GRID mode and/or Click Track settings.
