For the rest: very happy! Thanks for all your effort.
I could add it to the hint, as the icon itself is hard coded static and takes a too big a change for a 1.6a version, For 2.0 I'm planning to have a much more 'animated' gui so it will be much easier to do.

It looks like the program is trying to do snapping, but for example technic pins do not snap to technic beams properly? I cannot compare settings with my normal PC now, perhaps someone knows what I might be overlooking...
I can see two reasons:
- your library is not properly configured (eg. wrong path to shadow.csl). Press F11, if configuration is OK you should see connectivity indicators on all studs, tubes, holes...
- You are in grid setting mode, not snapping mode (click on GS in the compass thingy). Snapping mode shows a green PS instead of red GS. Note that GS is (currently) default mode for a new installation)

Like philo wrote snapping is disabled by default as I like to encourage new users to learn the grid method first because of the way snapping is implemented in LDCad (needs help from the grid for some parts).

The only other thing I can think of is the shadow library is somehow not deployed (file writing restrictions) so it can't be loaded. The F11 test should indicate that.

Fixed! F11 did not show anything, for some reason the section <LDrawPaths> in main.cfg did not include the shadow library path, I think from a previous installation with insufficient permissions.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
