Bug Description

Currently, the settings for grid snapping in the Document Properties dialog has two choices: "Always snap" and "Snap only when closer than:" (with slider control).

The behavior of the "Always snap" setting is such that the snap is constrained to only grid intersections.

The behavior of the "Only snap when closer than:" setting is such that the snap can be attracted to grid lines or grid intersections, the snap distance set by a slider control.

The attached screenshot shows the current behavior of a grid setting ("Only Only snap when closer than:"), and the resulting snap behavior with message.

Suggest label changes:
- from "Always snap", to "Always snap to grid intersections".
- from "Only snap when closer than:", to "Snap to grid lines or intersections when closer than:"

Given the horizontal space already allotted to accommodate the sliders, there is adequate space for the more descriptive labels.

Thanks,
TD
