Snap to Grid and SFG (Square Foot Gardening) mode

If you're using the Square Foot Gardening method, you can also choose to Automatically Enable Snap to Grid when entering SFG mode. If you have both SFG and traditional row or block planting on your plan this makes it easier to move between SFG mode - where pinpoint accuracy in plant positioning is usually desired - and normal mode.
