In qgis 2.99, when the digitizing snapping option is set to "dialog" and not "dock", the dialog does not show up when selecting the advanced configuration from the toolbar dropdown widget. In this setting, it's not possible to set snapping options, so it's a regression.

When set to "dock", it's possible to open the dock but it doesn't show up itself. It would be good to the dock opens/close when activating/deactivating the toolbar too. This is more a UX issue.

enabling the advanced mode from the toolbar is not meant to show the dialog or the dock. You have to use project menu -> snapping settings to show the dialog.
You would define the advanced config once and might want to switch regularly from current layer / all layers / advanced. Showing the dialog everytime would be a PITA.

ok, I get it, the entry has been moved from settings to project menu.

Now that we have a ditigizing toolbar and dock panel, I'd vote in favour to remove the old dialog option. It is a bit weird to have a dynamic and easy to use toolbar and have to 5 clics from a menu to change snapping options.

What about having a way to show / hide the dock when activating the snapping toolbar?

I also was confused about "dialog" and "dock". It's still in dev. Also, the new snapping toolbar is hidden in menu item "project". Took a while to find it.
