Oh Snap!

Today I got asked why every time a user pressed F3 the Osnap settings dialog appeared instead of the Osnaps toggling on and off. Clicking the osnap icon at the bottom of the drawing window produced the same result. The answer was revealed when I looked at the settings dialog.

No snaps were selected, so AutoCAD figured if you want to toggle on the snaps, you might want it to mean something by selecting a snap. Selecting any snap, returned the toggling tools back to normal.

I am naming this phenomena the Dan Maneuver, in honor of Dan's perplexing question. 

AutoCAD, when did you get smarter than us?
