When I want to select in example a intersection or a endpoint, QCAD v3RC2 preferred to choose the grid not the intersection or the endpoint of enteties.

This task depends upon

Hi LuxRalf

I haven`t found that happening in RC2 yet! But when presented with the snap options you should be able to select the snap mode of your choice.

Hi LuxRalf

Sorry - what I meant was that if you find this happening its probably because the last snap choice is remembered, so what you do is choose the snap mode of your choice. I hope this makes sense to you!

I can confirm the bug.

It happens if auto snap is on and a grid point is closer to the mouse cursor that an intersection point but both points are within the snap range. This is caused by an optimization introduced in RC2 and will be fixed in RC3.

Click "snap" → "Auto" one time and all is good for the moment. But at the next choice it is "snapping" the grid again.
When you fix it in RC3 all is OK
