I am bumping this to a 1.3 feature request, where the document preferences and application preferences are separated.

The current behaviour is correct in my opinion. Here is why:

Make a document with objects and without snap to guides.

Give it to a colleague who has snap to guides enabled.

Some objects are within the snap to radius.

Result: The doc is changed unintentionally - a very bad thing IMO.

If the Snap to... affects ALL objects I can understand the point, but in that case I think that is a bug. Snap to should not affect all objects, but only objects moved or resized.

My work flow is:

Create guides to help alignment
Create objects that snap to those guides

but as it is now I end up with frames of different sizes and in wrong locations because I forget to turn on the Snap to guides each time I start Scribus...

But maybe I'm just to spoiled with how I learned to use the different Snap-features of AutoCAD?

This is a bug, and annoying at that.

Assuming I understand what's going on correctly (I haven't checked the code to confirm) this can be fixed once the PageItem/ScribusView rewrite is complete. Part of that will involve a rewrite of mouse drag handling. We can start keeping track of "drag position" separate to "frame position", so we can actually snap the position of the frame properly.

Is this fixable in 1.2.2 ?

It is fixed in 1.2.2cvs too.
