[PD] Grid, x y control

a small trick I learned the last days - if you use coords instead of  
donecanvasdialog, it won't trigger the edit mode issue in vanilla. For the  
parameters you use, it should work.

I could leave a couple of theoretical suggestions:
- one disadvantage of data-s is that to move the marker, it's necessary to  
drag it from one of its corners. A click in a blank space won't have any  
effect. This might be circumvented using [mousestate] or a similar  
external, but it won't be vanilla code anymore.
- it's a pity that the variable limits in a struct can't be themselves  
assigned to variables. It's still not possible to reduce the size of the  
canvas but have different boundaries for the square. I guess a  
dynamically-created template would be an idea, but I didn't try with it
