Grid overlay for maps

Hi Mike,

A few years ago, I did a survey of a cemetery and ended up producing a map with a 2x2 metre grid overlay on the maps so that the cemetery could figure out where things were on the ground without having to get out a surveyor (i.e. they could just count the grid lines from a known point to figure out the distance to something that I had found underground).

I think the option used to be in the Configure menu.

I need to do this again but can't seem to figure out how to do it. I note in the Configure menu there is the Grid Display section, with custom grid spacing options (measured in "ground units").

How can I project a 2x2m grid over my maps?

I know I could use the 'create regular grid of features' to create a regular grid, but that creates a huge amount of features (my site is 500m x 300m), and causes the computer to crash.

Thanks in advance for your help. :)
