    [FEATURE REQUEST] I feel like the only reason i'm using Grids in blueprints - is because...

    because if someone who uses Grids viewed my blueprints, it would be a "mess" for them.

    Really grids make me a slave to them.. im always forced to place the nodes in specific orders regardless of whether it would be the absolute best position..

    Its SO MUCH CLEANER without grids AKA: much easier.

    Its so much easier for a new eye to understand the process when grids aren't making everything a jungle..

    So i ask you, is there a problem if i stop using grids? Considering that really nobody doesn't use them as far as i've seen.

    Say i sold a project in which i didn't place the blueprint nodes in the order that i currently do.. would that be a problem? Even if all of the nodes aren't in order?

    I dont know about you, but i really considering to stop using Grids.. but i'm just afraid of making a mistake.


    What about a toggle button
    that hides the grids so that i can place my nodes easily and do the thinking fast, instead of having all my thinking given to where to place the nodes..

    Plus whenever i want to show a process to a new eye, it would be really nice to be able to press 1 button and hide the grids.

    In that case.. i would still use grids, and wouldn't really cause as much problems as before.

    What do you think?

    I don't use grid snapping or the grid view at all, works for me.
    Probably not for everyone, but that + straight node lines makes me not care about lining up everything all of the time and it's still easy to read.


      I turned off the grid, and set snapping to half the size it has by default. Makes all the wires align


        @sdjgghj Can't use grids? Don't use them. Who cares.
        I love grids, those let me organize the nodes. Not like those spaghetti monsters.
        Routing nodes however need some love, it's hard to move them.

        There's a hotkey for grid toggle, but seems it's broken.
