The Piano Roll view can use its own optional and independent Snap to Grid resolution, separate from the global Snap to Grid resolution. This allows you, for example, to use a specific resolution when working with clips in the Track view, and a different resolution when working with note events in the Piano Roll view.
The Piano Roll view always obeys the global Snap to Grid on/off setting, even if you specify an independent snap resolution in the Piano Roll view. The Snap settings in the Piano Roll view only apply to the snap resolution, not whether Snap to Grid is on or off.
