How can we improve MicroSurvey CAD, inCAD, or embeddedCAD?

Snaps - Leave the latest (ONE) enabled until changed.

Great Improvement from MScadd 2010, but it wouldn't be as frustrating if it remembers the latest enabled snap until changed. To constantly revert to the snap pallate ends up time consuming.

    There is a workaround, that fixes the snaps:
    You should have the snaps visible as toolbar buttons.
    Open the Customize-Toolbar window via Tools or by rightclicking anywhere on a toolbar button and select Customize.
    Then click on one of the snap toolbar button, e.g. the one for endpoint.
    By default, under Command it is set to
    _END
    Change this to
    '_ENDPOINT

    Do the same for all the other snaps:
    '_MIDPOINT
    '_NEAREST
    '_CENTER
    '_PERPENDICULAR
    '_TANGENT
    '_QUADRANT
    '_INSERTION
    '_NODE
    '_EXTENSION
    '_PARALLEL
    '_INTERSECTION
    '_APPARENT

    After closing the Customize Window, it should be working as before. The snap-toolbar button appear selected on the toolbar, so you always know what snaps are currently active.

    If I could give this 1 million votes I would in a heart beat! [:-p

    IMNSHO, this is still an annoying change.

    "2.) Snaps! I really enjoy being able to switch snaps while in the middle of a command and having them be retained! MSCAD 2010 retains your selections even when you're finished. More often than not, I don't know what snaps I'll need until I start using the command and MSCAD 2010 forgives you for not knowing, whereas MSCAD 2013 punishes you for not knowing."
