The geogrid tool in gis.m doesn't allow you to change the font size. So I wanted to draw a lat-long grid over my UTM map display, but turn off graticule labels so I could use a dedicated text layer with larger labels instead. Like for making screenshots and figures for reports - the default text size of the geogrid labels are too small to read without squinting.

PS - the text tool is the third button from the right on the top row of buttons in gis.m.
