Bug Description

When dragging an object (or resizeing it) I can not enable or disable snapping with the hotkey (%). Instead i have to release the object with the mouse, then use the hotkey and pick it again with the mouse.

Desired behaviour (as i see it) would be that snapping can be toggled without realeasing the object.

Inkscape r9886 (Dec 29 2012)
Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.39-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I think I understand why this doesn't work; I'll have a look at this.

For the time being though, did you realize that in many cases you can disable snapping temporarily by holding the shift key while dragging?
