||There is no way to trigger an action after a preference has been changed, at the moment, and also no way to trigger an action when a document is created or loaded, so the grid will appear on the first Draft command being run after that. I'm sorry, but it's a limitaiton of freecad at the moment, and there is not much I can do about it...|
ok? as I have experienced it: pref-grid is triggered on the first GUI-command.
As happened in the indicated script, several python draft commands could not wake up grid - in other python scripts I remember a permanent grid, however.
It would be of use, if one had a work around to wake up draft grid noninteractively though. Gonna see if I find something.
||There is, actually... Draft->Utilities->Show Grid|
Work around for it:
with the indicated script there was no grid, so you maybe draw any line nearby.
After that you can put on grid non interactively at least:
>"it's a limitaiton of freecad at the moment, and there is not much I can do about it..."
If I understand right than it is more bug a rather than a design flaw and should/could be fixed some day, right?
||It is not a bug (a bug is something that should be working but that is not working). It's just a feature that is not implemented yet.|
ok, as you mean. just to support my point one might consider that in the english prefs the option is named "show grid always". And it was confusing to us as freecad newbies when we noticed that it was not only not "always shown" but just initially not shown. So back to the definition "something that should be working" One would will not assume this behaviour as is.
I mean for me it`s ok, if it stays in the feature list though. Never mind.

It is still not implemented, but actually with triplus's gui improvements the Draft grid now appears on file load, so we could consider this bug as not relevant anymore.
Based on the above feedback, closing ticket
