Guide lines only visible in active scene

Hello @lentschig7 (Konrad),

I’m confused as to your expressed need for guidelines in a dimension string. What makes it necessary to have guidelines in this case? I surmise this feature would be rather useless for a “detail oriented architect.”

You are certainly welcome to voice your opinion, but doing so here only to complain serves no valid purpose and, as you say “That’s not practical. That is a waste of time.”
As to grid creation, a fairly straightforward/simple process using native guidelines, one may also resort to plugins to automate the process.

Here is a link to one thread where a bit of info is discussed:
unable-to-set-guidelines-from-face-of-component

There are others to select from, just type guidelines in the search box.
