Projected OSnap label wish


While I like the reminder that I have project on while picking an object snap, I actually find it a bit distracting when making a pick to an object I know to be on the current CPlane 0 (as in “wait, did something move?”). My suggestion would be not to display “Projected [OSnap]” on the cursor unless the pick is actually being projected, otherwise just display the OSnap without “Projected”



Or, instead of that, just showing the XYZ in the tooltip.
Would also help in other cases.

Hi Sam - thanks, I don’t know what is possible there, but:

@Charles - your idea seems good too except that it falls down, I think, when Planar and Project are both set. Currently you can display the point at the cursor using cursor tooltips (Options> Modeling aids>Cursor tooltips) so you can try it out. I see that for points in the CPlane, there are only two coordinates shown, which may make sense in terms of clutter but might be harder to read at a glance if one is just looking for the “0.0”.
