Here's the setup. Snap the center of one object of a group (of 2 or
more objects) to the center of a rectangle.
If you use the option "Snap an item's rotation center", it won't work.
Inkscape wants to snap the center of the group to the center of the rectangle.
But if you use the option "Snap center of objects", it works like a dream.
I've always assumed that the relatively new (well, new-er, anyway) "Snap
center of objects" was meant for those unusual cases where the center of an
object and the rotation center of an object are not the same spot. But this
behavior implies that perhaps "Snap center of objects" has a different purpose
(than what I thought).
1 -- Is there a bug involved in the above scenario?
2 -- Exactly what is the purpose for "Snap center of objects" compared to "Snap
an item's rotation center"?
3 -- Could the tootip text (for one or both options) be improved, to better
represent how they work?
I'm glad to memorialize whatever appropriate request is revealed about
this, in a bug report. I'm just not sure exactly which part needs improvement
or might be a bug (the behavior or the button names/tooltips).
(This was tested with Inkscape 0.92.3 on Windows 7 Pro. Also I had all
other snap options disabled, except for the snap center options, during
Thank you very much,
I am a long time inkscape user but I just recently found the forum. Maybe
it is just me but isn't it possible for us to include the forum (
www.inkscapeforum.com) in one of the main menus of the Inkscape website?
(maybe under the option "community" of under the option "learn"?)
There such a rich wealth of knowledge and so many active discussions that I
feel like I have rediscovered this application today altogether!
What do you think?
