I found the solution even better that suggested, that every inserted object 
should only land on an integer value position (dont know if anyone want to 
turn this off also? Then it could be optional).
That way this fiddling would be optional, and in most cases not necessary.
And if you have fiddled it onto pistion 1,234 mm (wich sometimes is necessary, 
but mostly not), then you would also be able to move it 1mm (to 2.234), not 
first to 2mm then to 3mm. 
I need *both* options independently :-)
It depends on my object wether I need exact integer values or if I need a more 
exact value. I dont want this to be the same for all objects IMHO :-)
