    • Objects no longer seemingly jump or scale up when moving multiple of them with snapping turned on (Commit)
    • Default snap delay was set to 0 so snapping will work more precisely (Commit)
  • Text tool:
    • Line height doesn't change spontaneously when switching tools while having text selected (Commit)

Import / Export
