Selection priorities

Post by Krischu » Tue Oct 22, 2019 3:03 pm

Just a question: when you have a circle with a polygonal cross hair in it and you hover over the midpoint, it seems that the center is covered by the interection. So alway intersection is offered as the snap point.

Is there a way (keyboard shortcut or modifier) that changes the intersection to the center (they may be equivalent though)?

At the left you will see the snap options when referencing.
You can also open the Snap menu item.
Snapping is usually Auto with no restrictions.
Lots of choises there.

In App.Prefs Snap you can enable or disable the auto state of individual methods.
You can't alter the hierarchy if references may coincide.
