Within the current QGIS Print Composer, there are only the options to use a line grid or cross grid symbol. I believe that there should be at least an option for a circle/point option and adjustable size.

For map production gridlines can be too heavy and cross-hairs are too distracting, in some scenarios it is preferrable to use a point grid (5pt/6pt) - this option is not currently available.

I think a few more options should be added apart from what its proposed, currently only zebra option and another I cant recall. I think having a few more presets would be useful

Is a point grid like in the attached file?

(Yep, I know the red dots are big and glary, but that can be changed)

Maybe this should be checked if we should close it
