c'mon JeF look at the bright side... we had the bezier tools in 7.5 anyway
hey the new snapping tools are great...

you can snap to cross section of wireframes in subdiv mode...

Hey zeno, I feel silly. Where are the snapping tools located in LW 7.5?

in 7.5,
press [shift] g---> snap drag tool---> press N for some option
or
location---> Modify>>Move>>Snap

it only snaps to other existing point, (use any option in Numeric tool (N))

and you can set for snap to grids in Display Options [d] >>Units...

you already knew these don't you?...

mmm...Zach sorry about that fake snaping tools images.. heh it's not funny...

about snapping to the cross section of wire frame maybe i can use this trick...

A. put the cursor (point sel. mode) on the cross section (metanurbs mode) in perspective viewport (see pict. a)

B. freeze the object (ctrl [d]) (or maybe freeze only the closest face) select the point right there under cursor (as long you keep the cursor stay on that cross section of those wires) (see pict. b)

C. copy the selected point (c) and press [u] to undo subdiv. freezing.... and press [v] to paste the point. (see pict. c)

so the point ready to use for snapping tools [Shift g]
