The new grid feature is great for basic layout stuff! Would be awesome to be able to customize grids with custom width for specific columns.
For example, it would be cool to be able to create say a 2-column layout with one 2/3rds column, one 1/3 column, and a defined gutter.
Also the ability to define whether or not there is a gutter on the outside of the grid system as a whole or not...an example of this is a situation where you had, say, a content wrapper with 30px padding inside the left/right edges.

Why doesn't it allow you to define custom gutter and column widths?
And also, why doesn't it allow individual settings of left and right end padding values? It is frustrating working with a grid. We need a ruler and guidelines like in illustrator.

I marked this idea as inappropriate by mistake, just because the target area for the button is to small on mobile screens. I actually support the request.
I agree with Adam,
The actual grid feature is a fail. The is no way to set difference between EXTERNAL vs INTERNAL gutters like Bootstrap grid allow. The status quo ends up in never ending discussion between designers and (front-end) developpers

The intended use of this type of grid system to handle that case is to create a layout grid with 3 columns. Assuming the "2/3rds column" is on the left, place the content for that column in the first 2 columns. Place content for the "1/3 column" in the last column. Does that make sense?

The "gutter on the outside" is the margins.
