It's hard to inspect layouts of designs from read-only mode

When I operate as a developer, implementing code and referencing designs, I need to inspect how the design connects to our layout system: it’s columns and grid lines in the Figma design.

When I’m in read-only mode, those tools can’t be toggled by me and I have to copy the file to be able to inspect the design fully.

I’d love to have the layout grid tools able to be toggled from the read-only view so I can fully inspect the designs.
