Then we need something more stable. I'd switch over to a 0 based index into the list of grid sizes, but maybe treat user size as special, assigning it -1, just so it does not get moved in the future if more sizes are added.

What about the 'obvious' solution, i.e. just saving the grid size in decimils like all the other things in pcbnew?

Something like:

GridSize 1000 1000

for a 100mil grid...

A lookup on the dozen or so predefined values is not so heavy (and anyway is only done on load)

This is obvious, and quite agreeable. I'd like to have a grid offset in there too. See next posting.
