snap range

I have started an enhancement request as follows:


"As the screen resolution increases it is increasingly difficult to "target" lines and points etc when sketching. If I reduce the screen resolution it appears that lines are 4 pixels wide on the screen and that the snap range for picking them is 6 pixels so you have to be within 1 pixel of the entity before it can be picked. I have been using SW since '97 and this is a problem that is becoming more profound as the hardware advances to the point that it is now a problem. I have already bought a mouse (I prefer this as an interface tool) that has multiple DPI settings that allow me to drop the DPI setting by clicking a button but this is very hard to use without thinking about it and that then disturbs my train of thought all the time while I am trying to get a design down on the screen!


I believe this would provide a significant time saving and understand that this is a standard feature in many other software systems (Autocad etc.)."


I hope others will add to the request to see if we can have it added as a setting for user customisiation



PS. I will add the ER number once I get it (the number I have currently is 1-7636534866)
