Ability to Disable Snap to Axis

I’d like the ability to either disable axis snap or force endpoint snap. This could be a setting in the preferences menu or, perhaps more useful, holding down the Alt key whilst drawing.

When working with models which have elements close to, but not on, axis lines it is difficult to snap to an endpoint without zooming in really close. Having to do this time and again is tortuous and time consuming.
I am currently working on a historic building orientated to four different streets at four different angles with next to no parallel lines; one workaround I have been doing is temporarily changing the component axis to one that is not near to the lines I’m working with, but due to the complexity of this particular building, eventually I get to a part of the model where the axis clashes again and I have to change the axis.

Set up a series of Scenes, each of which saves only an appropriate Axes orientation.

See this demo model.
