Mike,

Thanks for incorporating - "Added new right-click option to the Digitizer Tool for creating a regular grid of areas anchored at some point and of user-specified size, rotation angle, and naming".

Please include an option for specifying the grid dimensions in feet and chains.

Also it would be quite handy to be able to confine the grid to be constructed within a specified polygon.

Many Thanks!
John

    I have updated the custom grid creation to allow specifying sizes in lots of different units. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v12.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v12 version there is a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper12_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Mike,
    Thanks for including a choice of units. It works like a champ. Is there a way to confine the points to a polygon? Right now to populate a poloygon with grid points, I create a grid that overlaps the polygon, create points at the center of the grid, then delete the grid blocks and points that fall outside the polygon.
    Any suggestions to streamline that process?
    Good work!

    John,

    I'll add a new option to only create the grid within a selected area feature.

    Thanks,

    John,

    I have completed updating the grid creation to support cropping to selected area features. Now any grid cells whose center is inside the selected areas will be kept and all others discarded.
