The Snap “Reference” is perfect working on circles.

I would be nice to have this function also on Arc’s.
There are many necessities to attach a Horizontal or Vertical line on an arc or an “ex circle” (circle after a cut,)rounds etc. in a professional drawing.

This task depends upon

Using 3.1.2 on Windows XP, the Snap Reference seems to be working for arcs that cross any 90 degree border, but only for the center (which is fine by me).
For arcs that do not cross a 90 degree border one can only snap to the end points, not to the center (which is quite a nuisance: you have to 're-construct' the center each time).

That qualifies this as a bug, IMO.
A deeper search revealed it reported as one: FS#257

Leo: please use "snap to center" to snap to center points of arcs, circles and ellipse arcs.
