I don’t know if this is something inherent in how an elipse is made or a bug, but I find I cannot snap to a grid on a user defined cplane for the second input of the elipse from center command.
I can with any of the default cplanes though.
Maybe because the “resolution” ratio between the length of the vertical axis and the horizontal axis goes under a certain limit that prevents it from aligning along the grid on the user defined cplane?
Hi BabaJ- I guess I need an example…
Here’s a file with a user defined cplane.
First axis for elipse starting at cplane origin and going vertical, no problems with any ‘grid point’ ( where the grids cross ).
However, going horizontal one cannot place the second elipse point on any gridline crossing.

Yeah… - if you run
Plan first, the snaps work but they should anyway… Your existing ellipse is not in the CPlane…
Hmmm…interesting “…Your existing ellipse is not in the CPlane…”
I wonder why…my steps while in perspective viewport:
perspective drop down menu - Set Cplane > user defined plane
perspective drop down menu - Set View > Plan
then draw elipse as above
