Hello everybody,
we are currently looking at our options to setup the game. We are especially interested whether somebody uses the options marked red in the attached image, and why they are considered useful.
Any input welcome.
If they are not widely used (means only few responses here) we might consider to remove them.

docking options

Since close to when i started playing widelands i use the option Dock windows to Edges . I would miss this feature if it will be removed.

The Option Snap Windows only when overlapping was never used by me.

What is the effect of Snap Windows only when overlapping ? I activated it to see its purpose, but nothing changed. The option value seems to not be used anywhere in the code either.

I have also Dock windows to Edges active and find it quite useful.

When it is activated, the windows are not "pulled" together until they actually touch, but then there is a resistance before they are allowed to overlap.

As for the original question: I don't use any of the snapping options, so I abstain. face-smile.png

to give my opinion. I don't need any of these options as the effect of both of them is rather small.

I also use "Dock windows to edges" but don't use "Snap windows only when overlapping".
