Summary0003723: modifier key to override snap to grid
Descriptionso I can perform a one-time move of an object without it snapping without having to turn off snap, then turn it back on again. Also on a dense grid for dragging an object quickly to a general location or trying out a placement visually without the tentative-snap jerkiness.
Tagsshortcuts, snapping

Very good idea!

Alternatively, set a short cut for turning Snap grid/guides on/off quickly.

Yes, that would also help. But I think for the second case--dragging an object freely until you get to the exact gridline you want to snap to--a modifier would be easier to use, if they haven't all been exhausted already.

It might function as a toggle too, so that snapping could be momentarily turned on if off as well.

This is also mentioned, along with a comment by louisdesjardins about individual-guideline snapping, in the discussion at the end of 0002899.

I would like to have a modifier key for temporary disabling snapping to anything (both grid and guidelines) while moving and resizing, too.

How about combining L and R click?

I'm not sure about having it as a modifier, but if there's one free, why not.

I'd prefer Ctrl, Alt or Shift (to be pressed while dragging) as a modifier key.
