Absolute Grid Alignment should perhaps NOT do third axis in orthographic views
Closed, InvalidPublic

Short description of error
I'm not 100% sure if this will be agreed to. When using Absolute Grid Snap in orthographic views (e.g. Top), I would have expected the snap to limit itself to X and Y, I can make this happen by pressing Shift+Z. Ether an option to only snap in 2 dimensions - perhaps a modifier key? would be really nice.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Does it happen in top view that your Object is moved in Z-direction? It should only move in x/y direction in top view, also when its not locked to this directions.

This isn't a bug, current behavior works as intended based on T42632.
