@tom k (tomjk) Try in top ortho view with Snap + Absolute Grid Snap as I think this demonstrates the issue. I'm able to move it nicely along the grid points and if I have it at a y=0.0 location, when I press "x", then the 3D cursor jumps on the y-axis based on where I initially clicked. It seems to be taking the initial mouse-click location as the position to use when constraining, but this makes it impossible to be positioned exactly on the grid.

If you do not have a numpad (smaller laptops don't), and want to use the camera views on 1-0 keys, then I was not able to select layers. In order to fix this I attempted to remap the layer toggles to Alt+1-0, but because of hardcoded shortcut keys this can't be done. Is there some other task for this cleanup as it definitely seems like a bug?

I think I found it, assuming advanced mode is normally = ? Is there a setting to make advanced mode the 'default' mode? Or is that = key needed to allow other keys to be used in that quick-mode?
Thanks for looking into it. Sorry I'm new to Blender, how do you switch it to Advanced mode? I can't seem to find the right thing to search for in the docs and pressing "*" doesn't work? (Maybe because I don't have a numpad?) Thanks again!

One other thing that may have affected this was having Applied Scale. Without doing that on a cube with arbitrary dimensions, I was not able to get the same inset thickness all the way around the face.
I also just noticed that the bottom quick-type-in (sorry don't know the name) that is displayed under the 3d window when the "i" key is pressed is not working properly either. If I had previously done an inset using the panel entry on the left (highlighted in the screenshot above), when I click a new face and press "i" it defaults to 0.0254 and looks correct in the 3d window (except for the original bug of having to use metric values). But if I begin typing 0.0254 (as shown in the quick-type-in below the 3d window) it is no longer the correct thickness when viewed in the 3d window (it is much smaller).
Thanks for the quick response.
