Dot grid in OpenGL


#1

I’m new to KiCad (and PCB design), and I recently made my first project. I wanted to use OpenGL mode as it seems to have more features, but I ended up using the default renderer as I could barely see what I was doing with the grid burning my retinas out.

I have set the grid colour to the darkest grey possible, but this is still far to bright to see the ratsnest. I have tried to change the ratsnest colour to give myself a bit more contrast, but this doesn’t seem to have any effect in OpenGL Mode.

Is it possible to use a dot grid in OpenGL mode, or set the grid to a custom (very dark) colour?
