Attached an updated patch, I missed the main menu item Guides/ Snap Lines before.

The patch doesn't change any wording, strictly speaking, but it unifies the labels. The existence of conflicting terms hurts usability.

I don't have a strong opinion on "Guide" versus "Snap Line", both make sense to me, except it feels a bit redundant to talk about snapping to snap lines.
