 +**Why is the stepsize important?​**\\
 +The stepsize has several uses. For one; it indicates the distance the architect would move if you press the arrow-keys on your keyboard once. 
 +
 +The stepsize also indicates the square which will be used as a //​tolerance//​ when snapping intersection points.... so if you find that there are lots of intersecting lines and TAD can get confused on which intersection point to snap to; a smaller stepsize will give a finer granularity.
 +
 +The  [[architect]] can also act as a place to end the dragging of objects -- if you drag the current object and/or set of objects and then leave the dragging action over the architect; then TAD magically will finish the drag precisely on the top-left corner of the square shape of the architect
