snap distance > pick distance impossible? - Macromedia Freehand

In the General Preferences, I tried to set the value for the pick distance to 1, and the snap distance to 5, but after several tries (and thinking my changes weren't saved) I noticed that the pick distance can never be greater than the snap distance. Greater pick distances will be reverted back to the snap distance. Anyone knows whether or not this on purpose or just strange behavior? tnx, Ton...

    Default snap distance > pick distance impossible?

    In the General Preferences, I tried to set the value for the pick distance to
    1, and the snap distance to 5, but after several tries (and thinking my changes
    weren't saved) I noticed that the pick distance can never be greater than the
    snap distance. Greater pick distances will be reverted back to the snap
    distance.

    Anyone knows whether or not this on purpose or just strange behavior?

    tnx,

    Ton,
    The snap distance cannot be larger than the pick distance. This is working
    as designed. The reason given by MM is that if the snap distance is larger
    than the pick distance, some points that are close together would become
    difficult or impossible to pick/select.

    Since it's impossible to actually try working with a larger snap distance
    than pick distance in shipping versions of FH, we'll have to take their word
    for it.
