Hello,

is there a way to disable snap to materials? I have a wood floor and when I try to draw a wall it will snap on every single wooden board. Gets really anoying.

Thanks.

Create a duplicate view that does not get put on a sheet, and turn off the floor surface pattern in that view.

Nice workaround. So I guess there's no way real way to turn them of for mats...

But that will do the trick anyway ;o)

Thanks a lot for the tip.

You could temporarily hide the floor in that view, then turn it back on again.

or toggle SO (snaps off) as a keyboard shorcut, which temporarily turns off
snaps for the next pick.
