Hex-grid is great idea (I see it in v0.94) !
As evolution of it, I think,
triangular grid should be added or even
hex-grid should be replaced with triangular.
Triangular grid has all features and advantages of hex-grid
(in fact, tri-grid is exactly hex-grid with extra point in center of hexagon)
and some additional: guidelines are continuous,
more guided directions from each grid point, etc.
Could someone make it for Dia, please ?
Sounds like a good idea.
Please add a request in Bugzilla. http://bugzilla.gnome.org
It might get added eventually by some generous soul but if you really want
it you will need to try and add it yourself or sponsor a programmer to do
it for you.
Thanks for using Dia.
