BUG: Layout - Document - Line always in 1mm grid. Independent of grid setting.

In the board it is not possible to draw a line in other grid than 1mm in the document mode. Regardless of the grid setting. In the library editor any grid works.

@Endtronic  Can you share the screenshot of the grid dialog?

Thank you very much for the fast processing.
In the dialog, the multiplier is set to 1.
I have tested it again. This effect exists in SCH, BRD and LBR. Not in "Wire" but only in "Line" (tab document).

The line command works well on my machine. Do you mean it works if you type "Wire" from command line?

Not sure if it's relevant to the language settings of your system.

If I change the grid to 1mm, you see it's right.

Hi @Endtronic,

 

THe multiplikator factor just means that grid lines are drawn at multiples of the grid spacing. So for example when you set the grid to 0.5mm and multiplikator set to 10, you will only see grid lines every 5mm (10*0.5). If these objects were originally drawn to a 0.5mm grid then when you switch to a 1mm grid some thing may line up but others will be off grid. Additionally in the schematic editor, you should only ever use 0.1"(2.54mm) grid. All default components are made to that grid so deviating from it could lead into issues forming connections.

 

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the issue so let me know. 

 

Best Regards,

I can't believe it.

After I restarted Fusion360 1h ago it suddenly works.
In the video before restart (attachment) you can clearly see that the lines, circles and arc were always outside the grid. It was always in the grid 1mm. Rec, poly and text were Ok and changed with the grid. I also had the effect 1 week ago. Are there any known effects with 4K monitors ?

History: I have been using Eagle for over 20 years (4 .. 7.7 since 2016) and know how grid, multiply (CTRL, ALT etc) works. Since 4 weeks I am (proud) owner of a Fusion 360 license. I find very much better solved (3D, "QuickRoute", real-time DRC - TOP etc.). It is a bit slower and seems to have some problems with multiple 4K screens.

Also that the data is in the cloud is (still) getting used to, but also offers many advantages. 😉

Many thanks to "yqliu" and "jorge.garcia" for the quick handling of my (solved) problem.

Keep it up !
