F5 not working?

Post by CinnamonGirl on Tue 23 Dec 2014, 20:19

I read that it is possible to move objects half a square by pressing F5, but it doesn't work for me. Any ideas why?

Cycle Between 1/2 tile and 1/4 tile grid snapping for object placement: F5

Edit: ahh, actually it does work - but only on the floor... It would be more useful for windows, doors and placing small objects on furniture (dressers etc.).

Hello CinnamonGirl,

Since the walls are not "organized" into grides and tiles, I'm not sure if this method (with F5) is going to work. Yes, floors are organized according to tiles and there is a grid too. There may be something else though, which I will try myself next time I get to play. Stay tuned, if youw ant. Or maybe someone else has a better idea.
