Several weeks ago I noticed that grid options were no longer set per display mode, but globally for the document, although they can be assigned to a specific viewport. I thought I would let it go and see how it develops, but there seems to be no further work on it. How long has this change existed in the WIP?
In any case I really don’t like it. I think the grid setup should be customizable per display mode and if necessary, viewport.
I can see an argument for the global approach for someone’s collection of working display modes, but many people also have custom modes dedicated just to finished viewing. They might have a set of modes where the only difference is the presence or absence of either unsightly or important grids and axis indicators.
I think you’re barking up the wrong tree with the current system.
I’m interested to hear what others think.
