Photoshop Request: Option to Disable CTRL Snap toggle

Can we please have an option in Preferences to disable Ctrl key from toggling Snap mode?

This can be intrusive and sometimes annoying, as currently holding Ctrl-Shift to drag duplicate an object or selection with Snapping *on* will disable Snapping, so you can't just duplicate drag to i.e. the Grid.

Elsewise, if Snapping is disabled, it *will* snap to the Grid when Ctrl-dragging.

So we're stuck with manually toggling Snap constantly while working, which isn't very nice and is counter-intuitive - it's also not obvious what the current snap state is as it's a 'silent' modifier, which can get all the more difficult to track when you're having to do the manual switcheroo a lot.

Promoting the Ctrl toggle as a user preference seems like the simplest and most practical way to fix this, without breaking things for people who actually like and require it as is.
