Snap tool was eagerly welcome, but after a few years it's still terrible, one can hardly see what is snapping to the tiny red dot and the snapped feature is not highlighted at all. It is the subtlest snap feedback I have ever seen. It is truely hard to notice when not even totally invisible if one is trying to snap to some vertex under another feature. The two modes available are not enough (what you call axis snap, I would not call it a snap mode, ibut rather ortho drawing mode)

When we are editing a shape A and we drag a vertex that was created with a snap on another vertex of a shape B, they move together even if we are not necesarily wanting to edit both features. is there a way to prevent this behavior?  can we de-snap a node on a feature so it can be dragged alone?

I have reported by mail that snap isn't working at all during rectangle creation... the bug remains the same in latest stable release and so in the 2.1 beta. Please solve.

By the way if you give us a rectangle tool, please let us have persistent rectangles. Allow us to draw them rotated, let us modify height and width with a gizmo in the midpoint of each side, or let us drag two adjacent sides consistently orthogonal when we drag a corner.

Best regards.

Hello José,

Thank you for your feedback.

Regarding the snapping issues for rectangle drawing tool, the issue should be solved in the latest pre-release version already (check build 17343 or higher).
Best regards,

When I want to connect the endpoint of one line to the endpoint of another line, it connects the endpoint to the wrong height.
You can see in the picture that in the moment before the connection it still points to the right place, but as soon as I release the mouse, it creates the end point of the line a few centimeters lower.
