GUI Indicator for: Smart Guides, Lock Guides, Snap to Grid, Snap to Pixel, Lock Perspective Grid
A Panel full of INDICATORS. These indicators show whether:
-Smart Guides are on or off on
-Lock Guides is toggled on or off
-Snap to Grid is toggled on or off
-Snap to Pixel is toggled on or off
-Lock Perspective Grid is toggled on or off
Opening the View Menu constantly do in order to check which options are toggled on or off is annoying and a waste of time. An on-screen GUI element in the form of another snap-in panel with two-state buttons for each option (one highlighted state for "on", another greyed-out state for "off") would be ideal. Or maybe these indicators could be added to the Control Panel or Properties Panel.
I just noticed as I was writing this, that there is already an indicator of sorts for Snap to Pixel on the Control Bar, but there are none for the rest.
Like Egor said below, I would really appreciate it of the Snap to Grid toggle was visible right next to the Snap to Pixel toggle in the top control bar.
So far, the only toggle that you can customize as an indicator is Snap to Pixel. It'd be awesome if all the toggles in the Properties Panel could be customized to be persistent in the control bar as well.
There is a GUI indicator for the guides, snap options, and ruler and grids in the Properties panel. The problem is that those options go away as soon as the user has selected an object.
The key there is that those indicators need to be PERSISTENT, not contextual.

Again, I repeat, put them at least where two existing indicators are., or even higher, where workspace dropdown is.
