Magnetic / snap to grid for resizing objects.

+11 votes

When resizing objects, there is no magnetic / snap to grid effect occuring.

The following video shows the problem when resizing objects.  It compares Illustrator's behavior with that of yEd.


This is a more formal, better formulated request which derives from http://yed.yworks.com/aasupport/qa/4680/can-the-grid-be-magnetic

I agree. I am used to such behavior from other apps. This is far more convenient than entering the size in properties.

I miss this feature every time I use yEd.

Entering the size manually is really annoying.

I agree, not being able to conveniently resize elements on the fly really breaks the work flow.
