Draw something where every object is on a grid point (snap to grid is on).

Now copy it and paste it somewhere else in the document: now the objects are no
longer on the grid, which makes it impossible to edit the copied drawing.

If I reposition the copied drawing slightly, the objects do snap back to the
grid.  So there is a work-around.

IMHO, the snap-to grid should be relative to the frame they are in, not to the
page.  If this were the case then the fine positioning of frames would not
matter.  Other integrated drawing programs works this way (WordPro in IBM
SmartSuite, for example).

When pasting an object, its position attribute will be respected. Because the
position is measured relative to the paragraph it could be, that the position is
not directly on a grid point in a different paragraph. This is industry
standard, other Word processors behave the same way. 
But it could be nice to have an option where the user can define by himself if
the grid will be respected on cut/copy and paste of objects.
