4K Screen/Monitor Settings

Hello,

 

I don't seem to find a solution to my issue.

When I changed the laptop, like two years ago, drawing straight lines, walls, etc. becomes increasingly complicated on a 4K monitor. I tried to change the Cursor snapping range from 5 to 3 but it still doesn't work well.

Has anyone experienced the same issue? What was the solution or workaround?

If I worked at a 4K resolution, I would increase the Cursor Snapping range, not decrease it. To 7 or 9 pixels. That means that if the cursor is 7/9 pixels aways from a point or edge, it will find it and the Cursor shape will give the proper feedback. A Cursor Snap range of 3 means you have to move your cursor very very close for it to find those points or edges.
