Summary0001879: Draft->move behaves strangely when snap to working plane is enabled but working plane is 'none'
DescriptionWhen the working plane is set to 'none' but draft snapping includes the working plane, the snapping while doing for example a "draft->move" seems random. IMHO when the working plane is set to none, the snapping system should ignore the working plane snap option - since snapping is otherwise kind of random, it can take the user a long time to figure out the problem ;-)
Steps To Reproduce1. Set draft working plane to none, enable snapping to the working plane.
2. Start moving an object and select the starting point.
3. Try putting the object somewhere, snapping will be random.

Screenshot shows me trying to move the cylinder on the left (starting point is top center of the cylinder) to the right hand side of the box, snapping to the corner. However, as the UI indicates, the cylinder's top center will not be placed at the corner.

This is IMHO not a bug. There is always a working plane, which, when it is set to None, adapts to the current view. If you press the "snap to working plane" button, you will indeed snap to that temporary working plane.

Maybe what we need to do is change the word "None" for something more meaningful ("Auto" maybe?)
