|Summary||0015652: Grid spacing X and Y|
it would be really nice to set up Grid Spacing in both directions (X and Y) separately.
Major Grid Spacing X:
Major Grid Spacing Y
For Minor Grid Spacing, set a subset of Major Grid Spacing:
Minor Grid Spacing : Major/x (set up x)
Use case: Having a page with special dimentions (e.g A4), the original grid is not useful, because it doesn't respect the x-y aspect ratio. Having the possibility to set up X and Y Grid Spacing makes the Grid useful for such page dimentions.

imo, there are very few cases where the grid makes sense in page layout.
i think that you'd better create a typographic grid, by using the "rows and columns" tab in the guide manager.
a bit more of work, that most of the time leads to a better result in print.
when i look at all the tutorials on youtube that use the grid, i think that we would make a great favor to the beginners, if we would completely remove the grid.
p.s.: currently, the only case where i would use a grid, is when i edit a shape's nodes... but nodes do not snap to anything in scribus...
I didn't know about the typographic grid, this is amazing! The only thing I miss from the Grid is the shortcut "#" to view/hide the grid and that it looks different than the guides. Maybe it would be possible to combine both?
thank you for the hint!
personally, i would suggest to move the # away from the grid and use it for the guides.
but you can always define your own shortcuts in preferences > shortcuts...
