Especially with arrays of bigger objects, it is (too) hard to place them orderly aligned, especially in big maps.
What I'm thinking of is:
Give us the option to :
* mark a point (a) on the border of the editor window
* mark another point (b) on any other border
of the editor window
* and draw a line from (a) to (b) across the editor window, along which objects can then be placed or re-orientated "in line".
This would be much better than a simple grid, because the positioning of aligned objects would be possible at arbitrary angles across the window.
The lines don't need to be saved with the map, in my opinion, because, IF there are already saved objects aligned along them , after a reload of the map, the aligning line can easily be reconstructed, if NOT, then a new aligner lign can simply be set.
If the idea of aligner lines should be adopted, in the long run
, it would also be desirable to be able to have simple geometric shapes such as rectangles, circles, ellipses as aligners on the map window, and possibly even have objects "snap" to them while the aligner exists.
