I want to put a drill hole (small circle) in the midpoint of a rectangle (formed of 4 separate surrounding lines). How can I adjust the snap mode such that the cursor snaps to the midpoint of the (green marked) area?

In this particular situation you can use the "Center of Selection" snap. In other situation the "Middle Manual" snap will provide the solution.

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!

Thanks. Found it in the drop down menu (SK). Does not appear in the left icon bar.
