You shouldn't have to zoom in, just click on the intersection. The
program will try to find an intersection near where you click if one
exists. If you click too far away (about 5 pixels or so) then the
program is likely to either choose a point on one of the construction
lines if it is near enough or a coordinate not on an entity if not.

It's a bug if you click on the intersection (within the tolerance)
but you don't get the intersection coordinates as your point coordinate.

Not a dumb question at all.
