Description firmail 2003-10-29 15:48:33 UTC

to improve the ease of arranging shapes, it would be convenient to have
something like snap-to-object border (not just the points), so that one could
move around the shape of a circle/diagonal line. 

This can now be accomplished a bit awkwardly by doing:
1. copy the object A (i.e. a circle, diagonal line) in its place
2. convert copy to curve, so that it gets a lot of (bezier) points (do it
severaly to improve resolution)
3. click "snap to object points"
4. move the object B that shold move along object A's shape
5. delete the copy of the original object A

With this little feature you could achieve that any shape could behave like a
snap-line or snap point. Which would IMHO faciliate drawing. Especially when
moving a shape along a diagonal line (now snap-lines can do this only
horizontally and vertically).
