Would it be possible to implement “Dot Grid” as an option that’s part of the standard Grid command settings/configuration?
For example, my screenshot below is taken from QCAD. There is a check box option in that particular program titled “Solid grid lines” – checking it shows the typical horizontal/vertical “LINE grid” at the user specified interval. Unchecking that option shows the “DOT grid” where points are located at the intersections of the user specified interval. The important thing to note here is that it’s not creating point geometry, it’s purely a graphic/view display setting.
The biggest reason for wanting to have the DOT grid option is mainly for legibility of linework. I do a lot of illustrative patterning work, and it can get a bit confusing trying to decipher linework from the grid the larger the designs become. For this reason, the DOT grid display is much easier on the eye IMO.
