    I'm curious that the ProGrids package is still in preview - no doubt it could use some additions and a more Unity-like interface but having been available for a while I thought would be out of preview like ProBuilder.
    What is the plan for grids and snapping going forward?

    Judging from their page about ProBuild and ProGrid (singular!), it looks like they are planning to merge them to become one tool which integrates better with Unity. So it's probably just interface improvements/smoother package installation left, while feature-wise it seems fairly complete.

    Hi! Yep, we plan to integrate the tools more "seamlessly" with Unity, though that's going to take some time.

    OK the only annoying thing though is the title bar then shows "[PREVIEW PACKAGES IN USE]" when using it!
    Someone should be nudged to accept it as ready for now!

    Update: we're deprecating ProGrids ... and making all it's functionality native to Unity! :) Much better option, should appear in 19.3 soon.

    A very late follow up on this: Is this in the plan still for Unity 2019.3? What does it mean for us on Unity 2018 LTS?

    (I know "preview" is really just a way to say the API will change and break; but if there is no update planned for the ProGrids package, might as well put it out of preview?)
