Snapping: Align rotation button
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The 'Align rotation with snapping target' toggle button doesn't seem to have much sense in Volume snapping mode, as the volume has no normal or orientation. After doing some tests, it actually does some rotation align, but it looks like it depends on the initial orientation of the object to be snapped, which doesn't make much sense. I think that this button should not be shown when in Volume mode, as it results quite confusing.

Regards.

The volume does have an orientation, but not when used as a discrete snapping target.

The option shouldn't have been there in the first place, someone "fixed" it by forcing it to align to the z axis instead of disabling it as it should have been.

I've removed invalid options from the UI in revision 44429.

Thanks for the report.
