Change Default Grid Size

Is it possible to change the default grid size for footprint/PCB editor windows?  I am constantly changing the grid, because Fusion360 wants to default to 1.27mm.


Yes, I have unchecked reset to default in preferences:


What I want to change is the actual stored default grid settings in Fusion360, so that when I click "Default", it will change to some values other than 1.27mm.

Hi @wleismer ,


I hope you're doing well. The default value is reserved in Fusion electronics so it's not user editable. You can explicitly define whatever GRID you wish to use, but if a user gets in trouble Default is designed to get them to a known state hence we don't allow that value to be adjusted.


The Preference system needs to be a little more flexible but I don't forsee us changing the behavior of the Default button.
