Greetings all,

New user here, I purchased Affinity Photo a month ago and have been thoroughly enjoying this software.  It fits in beautifully with my old workflow when I was using Lightroom and Photoshop.

That said, there's one thing I find a little frustrating.  In the Develop Persona I toggle the grid overlay on/off quite often as I make lens corrections and I never know what to expect when the grid appears.  Most of the time I have to go to the Grid and Axis manager to manually set the grid for the image I'm working on.

My images are all DNG format, is there a way to set the default grid spacing?

Thanks in advance

Do not use Auto Correction?

At the moment I don't think there is a way to set the grid to a default setting, certainly not in 1.6.x but in 1.7 beta there is now a grid preset option

Firstdefence that's good to know about 1.7 I'll be looking forward to it.

You can try it out for yourself now, John.

Please be aware that you may be unable to open version 1.7 files in version 1.6, so you should always work on copies of your files.
