Currently in layout and schematic the "Display current interactive grid only" option doesn't work the same way as in symbol editor. In symbol editor if this option is selected and all grids are set to invisible then the current grid is displayed (well, after a screen redraw but that's another story). But in layout and schematic no grid is displayed under the same conditions. One needs to actually start an action (e.g. move an item) in order for the current grid to get temporarily displayed. I understand that it might be the intended behavior but it would be more convenient for me to have the same behavior in layout and schematic as in symbol editor. Is it possible to have an option for it in future releases? Essentially what I need is a way to always display currently selected grid only in layout, schematic, symbol and footprint.
Well, manually switching grid visibility in addition to changing grid itself is very cumbersome for me. Is it possible to add an option to always make currently selected grid visible right away once it's selected (in all editors)? That's a de facto behavior in many (most?) of the ECAD tools but I understand that different people have different workflows therefore having a user-controllable option would satisfy everyone.
