Currently, the snap-to grid can be changed with the minor gridline size field in the options menu. This sets whatever size you were using to that size, and doubles/halves it for each time you press the - or + key. This has a pretty big flaw though: If you set your grid to say 5, and hit the + key, the grid will go down to 2. That's understandable, but hitting - will double that to 4 instead of 5 like you chose. I think it would be better if, rather that doubling/halving, you could just set up each grid size independently of the others. This would allow for more customization: using 5 as an example again, currently you'd get 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 each time you hit +. But what if you wanted 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 200 instead? You would need to go into the options menu any time you wanted to use a different size and set it manually. Not really an ideal solution.

Also, - increasing the grid size and + decreasing it doesn't make much sense at all.
