persistent grid

Postby toyotadesigner » Sun Apr 10, 2016 7:22 am

I'm an architectural photographer and need to check straight horizontal and vertical lines.

If I double click an image in the browser, I have to activate i.e. a 10 pixel grid for each image.

How can I set this custom grid as the default?

How can I make the grid persistent, that means that my custom grid will be applied to each image automatically when I check it in the viewer?

Is there a slight chance that this feature can or will be implemented?

Or is there any trick to save my custom grid as the default grid?

Any help will be appreciated...

Try to assign a shortcut to the Grid action (go to Tools | Settings | Interface | Shortcuts - be sure to look at View mode) - for example a key which is quick to press: the best candidate is „G”, of course. (Just tested it - it works).

For Pierre:

Also, perhaps a drop-down in Tools | Settings | View | Misc called „Default Grid” will be a nice addition.

Thanks for the trick. However, this won't enable my very fine, custom grid with a custom color.
