A very useful feature would be to increase the number of snap points on objects from 4 to 16. I am trying to create network diagrams and 4 snaps is just not enough to make it look decent. MS PowerPoint has 8 snap point, however 16 would be the perfect number.

Reassigned. @shannonbowling: you know that you can add gluepoints by yourself? Please have a look at the help searching for gluepoints.

If you ever have tried to set a gluepoint to a corner, you would know, that at least default gluepoints in the corners are really necessary, see also issue 49316. Default glue points in the middle of a circle or ellipse are desirable too.

WG, Thanks for letting me know about gluepoints. I tried to use them, but they are not exactly what I need. They seem difficult to use, also I would need to create them for each object that I need to snap to, and in this case it is a large number of objects. I currently use MS point and "get by" with 8 snaps, however even with 8 the network doesn't look "smooth". I figure 16 would provide enough resolution around the object to fit pretty much any need. Once again however, thanks for your comment and I hope this issue can get resolved in the near future. I have committed myself to using OO because I am sick of being dictated by MS. I have even set up a website promoting Open Software call opensweet dot org.

Thanks for your reply, interesting to hear from your initiative. One more hint for you: once you have setup an object fitting your needs with the additional gluepoints you can store it in the gallery in an own theme to have it available all the time in all applications. Hope this helps!
