Description

When the 'move entity' tool is used, the snapping options don't work with a point layer.

But it works perfectly when the 'node tool' is used instead.

Is it a normal behavior ?

This is the standard behaviour. See also #3486 (Snapping for move tool)

Hi, Still true in qgis 2.18.4 and 2.99 and really confusing indeed for points.
Why not merge node tool and move tool using node tool behavior? That would solve the issue and also solve a UX problem.
(Martin, I affected that to you just to have you aware of that issue.. Do you have an opinion on disabling move tool for points? )

Beware of multi-points geometries.
