Map field: marker snaps to address since 5.8.6

    In ACF Pro 5.8.6 a change was made to the functionality of the map field. Now, when a marker is drag-and-dropped onto the map, the selected lat/lng are geolocated, and the marker will snap to the nearest address.

    For the majority of use cases I imagine this is desirable. However I have a couple of clients who use the map field to indicate the meeting point for events in remote locations: think locations within states parks. This change has really messed them up, since the nearest address might be quite some distance from the desired meeting point.

    I couldn’t see any way to disable the new “snap to address” functionality, so I am requesting that this be something that can be bypassed via a configuration setting, either in code or via ACF’s UI.

    Thanks Elliot!
