You know very well that the reason wasn't to remove options...

I'm pretty sure there is no (visible) grid that can't be generated with the
new interface. But I agree that it might be easier to specify a negative 
offset then to calculate the positive offset that leads to the same result. 

What do you think about this:

 offset range:  -image ... +image
   size range:  image ... 2*image

where image means image_width or image_height respectively. I will also look
if there's a reasonable way to make the plug-in remember the unit.


Salut, Sven
