Can't Snap to Geometry of Page-Scale Symbols


In the annotations of a plan viewport, when I tried to snap to the geometry (a rectangle) of a page-scale symbol, snapping wasn't available.  VWIS181


Closing and re-opening the file seemed to help, at first.  Ultimately, the snapping seems entirely sporadic, possibly affected by zoom level.


Switching Navigation Graphics from "Best Compatibility" to "Best Performance" didn't seem to make a difference.  However, doing so did result in the text in the page-scale symbols suddenly being the wrong size.  Reminiscent of https://forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/62556-first-hour-with-2019-sp3-productivity-0/#comment-311520 (VWIS156).  Exiting the Viewport and changing its Text Scale (Advanced Properties > Text Scale) from 1.5 and then back to 1.0 seemed to resolve it the issue.  But for how long, one wonders?

It turns out that it's not Page Scale symbols per se, but, rather, it's Page Scale symbols that are contained in Hybrid Symbols.  When editing the viewport and zooming in too far, the ability to snap to geometry of the Page Scale symbol is lost.  See attached Vectorworks file.
