Path-grid.
I have been using Path-grid.py for some prospective work and very useful it is too. What I'm wondering is though, is there a way to set the grid so that the path tool can be made to snap to the grid. If I click on the grid at the moment with the path tool it shows all the anchor points around the edge of the grid, but I can't find a way to add new anchor points that are not connected to the existing points.
What I do at the moment to get round this is to make the grid, set it to the perspective I want and then stroke it with a thin line, 4-5 pixels. After that it's just a case of making sure I click on the intersecting lines with the path tool. It would be good if there is a way to make the intersecting lines active snap points but I have no idea if this is possible.

RE: Path-grid.
Unfortunately not, when you are in the path tool. For other tools, you can use View>Snap to active path, but in the path tool, the active path is the one you are working on.

Thanks. I thought it might not be possible.
