Snap-to-angle is not activated if CTRL is pressed after first Bezier point

Postby asfarley » Fri Apr 27, 2018 8:41 am

I've discovered a surprising behavior re: activation of angle-snap.

What I expect: If I start a Bezier curve and create a single point (without pressing CTRL at the time), I should be able to hold CTRL after the initial point is created to cause the following line to snap-to-angle.

What I observe: If CTRL is not held while the initial point in the Bezier curve is created, then pressing CTRL afterwards does not cause the line to snap-to-angle. CTRL must be held continually while the initial point is dropped; then snap-to-angle is activated.

This was very confusing for me; I spent some time hunting through Inkscape settings to confirm that snap-to-angle hadn't been disabled until I discovered this behavior.

It seems to be working as expected for me, I don't have to hold Ctrl while creating a node to be able to use Ctrl later to snap angles.
