Is showing the half pitch grid a good idea?


I actually only noticed it today... when zooming out with the grid on, before
turning it off (because the points would be too crowded) the *displayed* grid
switches to half pitch. Example: a 0.05mm grid at some zoom levels is shown as a 0.1mm

IMHO that could be misleading if someone is used to 'count the dots' (giving the double of the intended size); of course you need to be asleep to not notice immediately such a mismach (monday morning, it happens:P)

BTW I just *love* the dual grid system (the alt-1 alt-2 keys...)
