Description

It's great having the grids available in the Composer and now in View decorations, but it's still not possible to generate a conventional lat-long graticule on a projected map without manually generating vector grids and going through a lots of hoops.

So, using existing grid generating tools in both the view and composer, it would be really useful to choose the grid to be in a different CRS than the map. Preferably any other CRS, if not only 4326.
