Summary0003817: Draft Preferences "Always show the grid" have no effect
DescriptionFrom the forum discussion:
Draft grid behaviour seems to be in independent of Preferences->Draft->Grid&snapping->"Always show the grid"

- Switch to Draft -> grid appears all by itself
- Switch to other WB -> grid stays
- Switch to and fro another time to switch it off.

I can switch the grid off completely in Preferences, but then in the rare occasions where I need it, I cannot switch it on at all.

This is what I would like to see:
- The behaviour is ok as it is if "Always show the grid" is checked.
- if it is not checked: switching to Draft will not show the grid. If the grid is switched on it can stay so even when switching WBs.
TagsNo tags attached.

To resume what should be done:

If Draft -> Use grid is on and always use grid is on:
- Show the grid on entering Draft, keep the grid on leaving Draft

If Draft -> Use grid is on and always use grid is off:
- Do not show the grid on entering Draft, hide the grid on leaving Draft

If Draft -> Use grid is off:
- Do not show the grid ever

The desired behavior sounds right, but I have a question about the location of the preference. Logically, things that appear in a WB preference should only apply to that WB. So if the grid can apply to FC as a whole, then it seems like it should be in a preference for FC as a whole, not Draft. If it's in a preference for FC as a whole, and it's possible to have it off/on for particular WBs, then the preference should probably be something like "On/off in all" with a further refinement of "except" where one can check the appropriate WBs.
