Description Nicholas LaPointe 2018-01-16 01:54:19 UTC
The "checked" state of the "Show Pixel Grid" checkbox inside of the "View" menu can be inaccurate when it is toggled in multiple documents or views.

(Steps assume that the pixel grid is already enabled, which it is by default)
1. Create two documents
2. Disable the pixel grid in one document
3. Switch documents. The pixel grid in this document will still be enabled, but the checkbox is now unchecked.

I'd expect that the state of the checkbox would match the status of the pixel grid on the view (versus the other alternative of the checkbox affecting all views).

Yes. I can confirm on Ubuntu 14.04 with Krita 4.0.0-beta1.1 and OpenGL enabled.

    turned the show pixel grid into an action and moved it to the view menu

The pixel grid is on/off based on the kritarc currently. It only currently works globally, not per view.

We will have to code something up so it keeps track of the enabled status by view and remove it from being on/off in the kritarc.

The weird thing is that there is some per-view code, or so it seems. I think
that's not necessary, actually.
Comment 5 Nicholas LaPointe 2018-01-18 23:11:02 UTC
I could imagine per-view control of it being helpful when a user has multiple views of the same document at different zoom levels, but I don't know how common such a use case would be.

Comment 7 Scott Petrovic 2018-01-19 13:48:36 UTC
I fixed the bug with it syncing.

For now the pixel grid is going to have to be a global option and not per view. That was how it was coded and the way it is saved/loaded with the kritarc. It is really a settings option that wasn't designed to be in the main menu.

If we start getting requests for people needing it differently per view, that can be a future feature request.

Hi, Scott!

There is still a bug with sync'ness:

When switching the state of the checkbox in one view, the **state of the checkbox** in another view goes out of sync :(

Fix syncing pixel grid state between windows once again

This patch extends commit1a47ae24712377821994c3b0309b9437da129d73 and
addresses the following issues:

1) The state of the menu action checkbox was not updated when the other
   window changed the its state
2) There should be **no** access to KisConfig in the OpenGL rendering
   loop (it is slow due to possible disk access).
3) A canvas update call should be issued right after the config changed,
   otherwise the old state of the grid will be visible until one hovers
   the canvas

Test Plan:
1) Open multiple Krita windows and zoom both of them to 1000%
2) Change View->Show Pixel Grid in one of the windows
3) The state on the checkbox and the canvas should automatically
   update in the other window
