Sorry. This was for 1.3.x

In your version, you need to have a document open then go to Edit > 
Paragraph Style
Then, "New" and then look at "Vertical Space" in that dialog. There, 
check the "Lock to baseline grid" option.

The grid itself has to be set in Settings > Preferences > 
Typography > Other > Baseline grid
