Description jaysea 2005-11-17 02:10:11 UTC
'Visible Grid' is not visible at high screen (1280x1024) settings or even at 
zooms filling screen width at.  Grid color changes have been tried. Best at 
any screen or zoom setting is a very faint, not usable for me, grid. 

Desired solution is ability set the dot size for the grid (or select from a 
few choices).

I agree, in some situations, mostly biz zoom, it#s difficult to see the grid points (see attached screenshot comparison).

Each point of the grid is a single pixel, whatever the resolution of the screen. And it does not grow if you increase the zoom factor of Writer.

A few years ago, you could distinctly see each pixel on the screen, when getting close to it.
Nowadays, the density of pixels (Dots Per Inch) is constantly increasing. Either with laptop computers, or with high resolution monitors.

Screen            Diagonal      Pixels      DPI
LCD Monitor      19 inches     1280x1024     87
Recent laptop    13.3 inches   1600x1900    138
Recent laptop    13.3 inches   1920x1900    166
Monitor UHD      27 inches     3860x2160    164

The way the grid is drawn is no longer consistent with current high-definition displays.
At least, the size of the point should grow with the zoom factor. Or/and blink the points when pressing a given key.
