Hello Andrew,

I just watched the video on snaps and here is my question.

How does the snaps UI relate to one's snap selection.
I had assumed that one would only select the snap style one was interested in.
I also never understood if there is a freehand mode?

Finally snap to grid is only for the major grid lines. The subdivision are not part of the "grid".

- Selected (active) snap options are highlighted.
- You can select and use more snap options at the same time (just de-activate the options you are not interested in).
- If for "freehand mode" you mean with no snap, yes there is: just de-select all snap options.
- Currently the "Snap to grid" option is for major grid nodes only, not grid sub-divisions.
