Apparently this is not related to Qt5; problem started sometime after 0.18.15007 and affects both Qt4 and Qt5.

Confirmed in the forum thread that bug exists both with Qt4 & Qt5 versions.
I removed the 'Qt5' tag but can't modify the bug info accordingly. If some superuser can do it, it could avoid further confusion. ;)

I cannot reproduce this. Here the grid size settings are kept. I set for different sketches in one model different grid sizes and in effect these settings were correctly stored. To use the same grid size for all sketches I set a value in the sketcher preferences and it works.

I reported the issue that the dialog however always shows you the grid size would be "0 mm" as bug 0004055.
