/gpaper config - Toggles the Interface options panel
/gpaper gui - Toggles the Interface options panel

The documentation for Align isn't so dense that I'd missed the command line switches. However, since you responded indicating that it should work, I decided to test it again and trace through the lua.

The issue I had is that subsequent entries of /align ignore the argument, so when I'd run /align to run it, followed by (for example) /align 64, that just toggled the grid off instead of creating a 64-square wide grid. If I enter /align 64 a second time, it toggles back on with the expected grid. If I edit it, I'll make it so it only toggles off with /align (nil), and otherwise creates a new grid with /align (arg). Thanks.

[Edited: And, yes, thanks for adding in the new option to GP. Playing around with it now.]

Suggestions for Graphpaper improvements:
* Disconnect the center line from the rest of the grid. If you change the centerline thickness value from the default (thickest) to another value (e.g, thinnest) you'll see that it moves the grid spacing when it probably shouldn't. The 'fix' option might help - but it is imprecise (because it depends upon the human Mark II Eyeball to determine whether you've created a grid that is perfectly symmetrical).

* Change the slider control for grid spacing so that it displays a numerical value and/or provide an input box so that you can set the value by hand. It's helpful to know the size of a grid square, so that you can ensure you're setting up a grid that divides evenly for a given display resolution. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing the ability to set X axis grid values independently of y-axis grid values, since no monitor in common usage has a 1:1 aspect ratio, meaning it would be (potentially) more useful to be able to setup a grid of rectangles, as opposed to a grid of perfect squares.

The slash command (/gp) for this add on conflicts with the slash command for GhostPulse. Not to be picky, but ghostpulse is an older add on, so it might be a good idea to change it or at least add an option that doesnt conflict (/gpaper maybe).

thanks
