      Try turning the show grid option on. The grid will disappear when you leave edit mode.

      nice trick roman, Nicolas, I'm on windows unfortunatly so I can't use your quebec oject but is there possibility to know if a windows patch is focused or no ?

      I think the OP was referring to a way to know programmatically when the patch gets locked/unlocked, otherwise the question wouldn't make much sense. It's indeed weird that there's no standard object for this, however, you may try recompiling [quebec] for Windows.
      Cheers, Ádám

      There's js ej.lock.js in the ejies which should do more or less what quebec does.

      Never mind --- I see that quebec source is available from a separate git. Very cool. Thanks
      ----- even transfer ownership
