Why is Snap to Grid (still) on by default?

Question

This needs to be changed to OFF. Listen to the latest podcast by Jansenson, Levy and Stanford for a fuller point of view. Having this harmful option on when the new user doesn't know of its actions is not in the goal of getting and keeping new users. There seems to be this idea that "if we put the tool in their way, they have to use it." This is not a helpful approach, in my opinion.

Yes. This is the origin of the sticky myth "VW is un-precise". I visited an office of 15 people some days ago, all of them oblivious of the use of the Snap Grid option. All of them drawing with that ON.

Please, switch that off as default (or give us start up scripts smile.gif)

Just coming back to this, it is daft that this is on by default. One aspect that makes a truly good application in my opinion is good default settings.
