NICE-TO-HAVE Slight changes to the grid drawing in Sketcher

Postby grnwrnch » Sat Sep 28, 2013 8:25 pm

Hi:
I'm an engineer, and have recently been switching from Pro/E to FreeCAD when I can, as a way of testing it out. There is one bit of low hanging fruit I wanted to pass on, which is that the "Auto" scaling of the grid is not my favorite. I wish there was a feature where you set it so that the grid covers the entireity of the sketcher view, instead of just a bit near the most recent sketch. Basically, when I try and draw something right now the grid goes away except near the object, so if I draw a 1mm square box on a 1mm grid, and then want to draw another box next to it, the grid goes away entirely. What I am having to do now is draw a huge box around everything, just to keep my grid, then draw my sketch, then erase the huge box.

Just something that would make using it a lot nicer. BTW: you guys are my heroes, I really applaud what you've done....

Please add feature requests to this site https://sourceforge.net/apps/mantisbt/f ... w_page.php Doing it in the forum is no good idea because it gets easily overlooked or forgotten.
