Yes basically you got it. Be able to have a snap to grid option on a non
uniform grid. Maybe the best would be to be able to have several grids
(that you can hide or not) or be able to snap only to a specific grid. For
example if I want to draw something on the bottom and on one face of a cube
(in perspective) it would be nice to snap to the lower face ''tilded" grid
when I draw the bottom part without being "annoyed" by the grid that
belongs to the side of the cube. Maybe simply a color code for each grid
would be enough... I am not sure I am very clear. Let me know if you don't
get what I mean.
Thank you very much!
