    Does the api offer any way to query what the current world grid line spacing is and can it be changed programmatically? Is there any way to read and/or change the many Viewport settings under the "Display, Filter, View, Back, HUD and Steroscopic" tabs?

    Yes, here's some Python code:

      
    bd = doc.GetActiveBaseDraw()
    bd[c4d.BASEDRAW_DATA_SNAP_PLANE_SPACING] = 150
    c4d.EventAdd()

    The BASEDRAW_ enum ( resource\res\description\dbasedraw.h ) contains all the parameters IDs for the view settings.

    Thanks.

    I need to get a proper handle on how this all works because atm it's not doing what I expect.

    I entered your code and the grid spacing figure changed to 1500 (not 150).  Also, by editing the code and changing the 150 to another number did not cause the figure to update - even after compiling and hitting Execute nothing changed.

    Where exactly can I learn about how the scripting UI is supposed to work?  Why doesn't the edited code work or replace the old code?

    Is there another set of documentation I'm missing here?  I can't find anything in the c4d help to explain how to go about actually enter and modify any code - where's that info?

    Forgive my ignorance here, but I am only just starting to get into the whole scripting thing but have no clue what I'm dealing with.

    This is because you are in millimeters world unit. And nothing changes because the value has been already set.
