Yes, I can see that. My grid is dotted grey. But are there no separate attributes for the axes to distinguish them from the grid? Also, if I turn off the grid the only remaining indication is a small cross-hair at the origin.
There is no extra axis indicator. What for? x goes to the right and y upwards, respectively in the opposite direction if negative. Simple.
In a 3-D program with an adjustable view an axis indicator is useful, but there is no need in a 2-D CAD.
