Just a few feature suggestions
Guideline with Measurement option checked could also show a distance from sidebearings, and two crossed guidelines.
When moving a node it snaps into another, but when moving a node with ctrl or alt pressed it doesn’t snap.
Good ideas! In the meantime, I can list a few workarounds:
- The measurement tool has this functionality, but only in text mode:
2a. Nodes actually don’t snap when you’re nudging (ctrl-alt-drag, or start dragging and add ctrl).
2b. Zoom in. The snapping only kicks in at a certain screen pixel distance.
2c. How I do it: I don’t want snapping when I work with high precision. In such cases, I switch to the arrow keys.
I also work with high precision and I find myself often trying to nudge some elements for quick testing etc. Snaping would be great.
There could be an option in preferences for such things I think.
High precision nudging! You can nudge with the arrow keys too, you know: ctrl-opt-(shift-)arrows.
