me_snapdistance
Set the snap distance to be used for grid snapping while moving entities in the map editor.
Parameter(s) <number>
Default Parameter 16
Alternate Key f6, f7, f8, f9, f10, f11
me_snapdistance <number>

Powers of 2 are recommended for ease of alignment, this becomes apparent when multiple walls and ceilings need to be joined and later when meshes are placed.

A 1 unit grid seems to be quite possible, and grids larger than 256 units as well, although the usefulness of the latter may be in question. Many mappers traditionally work with an 8 unit grid. The default is 16 units.
