Snap priorities or Weighted Snaps
« on: September 21, 2023, 12:28:32 AM »
Am I mad man....I like a few snaps on but would like them to have priorities which could be set.  Such as, if you have mid point & nearest then mid point takes priority if its within its 1/4 way point.  Or Centre takes priority as soon as  your within a circle etc.....Please don't tell me they already exist, wouldn't surprise me I've been using AutoCAD since 1986 and often miss good improvements.  Drives me batty when flickers between the different snaps and then I zoom in to anchor the snap choice.

If you have multiple snaps showing up, then, when you hover over a line, etc., hit the TAB key and it will cycle through the possible snaps. Click when the right one is highlighted.

Alternatively, you could just type in the snap you want. For example, CEN or MID. This is called a snap override.

LoL  I thought you were first saying I'm Tad mad.

Wow, I suspected there was a cycling key, thanks, I'll try TAB.


Weighted/prioritised snaps still bubbling as an idea.

Same here!

Thanks
You realize your surprise just means you are spoiled rotten.

When I started my internship, I was given the oldest computer in the whole company (a large company), and I was given a three-button mouse. When I asked what that "thing was"--because I'd never actually seen a mouse without a scroll wheel--my boss actually asked if he made a mistake "hiring me". Tab, transparent commands, and etc. were a life saver for me using that ancient, ancient thing they called a computer.
