Interactive snaps

Question

I know this sounds AUTOCADDISH but what would be great is if the user was able to quickly snap to certain parts of objects with a keystroke or a menu. Sometimes it can be annoying when a line is so long that it's hard to quickly find the centre of it without zooming right out same with complicated polygons without drawing a few guides to find it.

double wish.

I think its a good method like you mention to overide and control the snap points you wish, because there could be more than one in the snap radius of the mouse. Visual Cadd also did this (but in a better way than AutoCadd).

Ummmmm... isn't this exactly how it works now? Let's say your default settings are 'no snaps'. When you draw a new entity, you turn on (and off) each snap type as you go with a single keystroke. Or vice versa.

it seems like what is being suggest is an extension to the existing abilty to refine snaps live?

something like double tapping the snap key that would pull the cursor to the nearest of those snap points,

or the nearest snap point on the selected objects (and maybe center it to the window at the same time).

i can see how this could be really useful feature, with long, large objects or where you have a lot of snap points close together and it hard to lock to the one you want.
