Description l0f4r0 2019-03-03 23:41:08 UTC
Suggestion: Show (when applying) lines that help the user to visually align or distribute on the fly his shapes into the canvas while he is moving them.
This is not the already existing "Helplines while moving" feature. Indeed the latter only extends the shape border lines while the shape is moving. What I'm asking about here is rather lines that are only displayed when some alignment characteristics requirements are met.

To visualize what I'm talking about, you can watch the first minute of the following video: (it's about Visio)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add some shapes to the canvas
2. Move one shape near the existing ones

Actual Results:
No guide assistance to align your shapes while moving

Expected Results:
Display some distinctive guide lines

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
