this raises another point. can we have the option of an infinite grid?
This is what will be in the next WIP:
- Grid/Axis visibility options will be gone from the Grid document options page.
- There will no longer be Grid-visibility-per-view, it will always be per-display mode.
- F7 will switch the grid visibility for the display mode of the current viewport.
- Display modes will no longer have a “Use document settings” option for grid visibility.
Unfortunately, this change was not the WIP we just released.
We don’t use the grid. Ever.
So this switch actually alters your display mode and is “semi-permanent”? At what time does this info get written to the registry?
For example If I have multiple instances of Rhino open and my shaded display mode set up to not show the grid. Now, I turn on the grid in one instance. I expect it will not affect the other running Rhinos (if so, that would be really bad), however, suppose I open a new instance after having done the above. Will my shaded mode have the grid on or off? And now I have to make sure that the last instance of Rhino that I close has the right settings?
Really not all that fond of this change, myself.
It is immediate. You can expect other Rhinos to update within a few seconds.
You’ll be pleased to know we have abandoned this approach. We’re going about this another way now.
