Re: Show grid in eeschema status line


Hi Steve,

Your patch no longer applies cleanly as there has been some serious
refactoring and legacy code removal.  I think your patch is a good idea
but it will need to be fixed.  I do have a few comments from your
original patch:

* Please use `git commit` to commit your code to your local repo and
`git format-patch` to create patches to send to the mailing list.

* There tabs and indentation errors in your original patch.

* I don't think you need to make the precision of millimeter grid units
4.  2 should be more than acceptable given that you are using 3 for
inches units.  You may want to increase this by one for the board
editor.  The board editor has far greater precision than the schematic

I increased the count in mainframe.cpp to 4 to cover the my new grid pane, but I don't know if I really needed to do that.
