For new objects, turn off "Align to Pixel Grid" on the Transform panel. For existing objects, select them first, then turn off Align to Pixel Grid using the checkbox at bottom of Transform panel.

It was driving me crazy too... you can deselect the Align to Pixel Grid checkbox on the Transform panel (shows up on "show options"), but new objects will always retain the snapping behaviour. To turn it of permanently, click on the flyout menu at the top right of the transform panel then uncheck Align new objects to pixel grid. Phew...

The nodes of a path will always be centered with respect to the stroke (unless when dealing with live path effects or the powerstroke, but that's a different subject) You might still be able to achieve what you want, but only when dealing with bounding boxes. For this, go to Preferences -> Tools and set the bounding box to visual (as opposed to geometric). ...

There are several locations in the settings that affect snapping to a grid. View Page Grid Document Properties Snap Controls Bar Preferences We will look at each of these. The images may look different for different operating systems, but the general settings should still be the same. View Page Grid This does not directly affect snapping to the grid, ...

Currently, the adjustment of preferences for alignment are in three DIFFERENT places: "Snap to Point" and "Transprency Grid" in VIEW menu Then there are more options in the actual PREFERENCES "Align to Pixel Grid" - HIDDEN in the TRANSFORM PALETTE... It's hardly a transform function ... but putting it there, and having it be set by ITEM... it's as if ...

I am not sure if what you're asking to do is possible in Illustrator. One work around is to group the path to the object and then rotate the group.

These red dots are called "connection points". I don't know of any way to disable them, but you can override them by holding Alt while you draw.

If you cut out the central circle from the larger circle the object path will run around the remaining "O" shape. The auto align features will then snap to this path easily.

I presume these are two rectangle shapes, here is a way you can center them: Draw a line parallel to the side of one of the rectangles Select one of the rectangles, press Ctrl-T to show the handles and the center point Drag the rectangle to snap its center on the line Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the second rectangle Delete the line you drew in step one. If ...

As of now the snapped objects cannot be moved with the guides. You can only do it by moving your guides and then snapping the objects to the guides. (Although there was a proposal on implementation of moving objects along with the guides, but it isn't implemented yet- http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/SpecGuidesImprovement)

You're looking to disalign objects with the pixel grid. In the transform window (Window > Transform) You will see a checkbox labeled 'align to pixel grid'. Uncheck it. To avoid it in the future when you begin a new document - go into the same dialog window and in the right hand corner menu of that transform window uncheck "new objects align to pixel grid" ...

OPEN "Windows">"transform". There will three checkmarks at the very bottom of that window. I'm not sure what the last check box is called in english but unchecking it usually solves that problem. I think its called "Align to Pixel grid".

I'm not sure, but since you mentioned "grid", it looks like literally "snapping" to some grid is activated. Try disabling whatever "snap to" option may be enabled in the "View" menu.

Turn off Align New Objects to Pixel Grid. You'll find it in the Transform Panel options.

I cannot tell you why it is behaving in such a way, But i may be able to give you an alternate that might help you go around this particular problem. you can select the whole document using CTRL+A and then (having the layer you want to center to the document selected) Use the align options that appear above the taskbar when the move tool is selected. you ...

View > Show > Smart Guides Smart Guides help you align shapes, slices, and selections. They appear automatically when you draw a shape, or create a selection or slide. You can hide Smart Guides if you need to.

Create a rectangle that surrounds the area where you want the guides. Select rectangle and go to Object -> Path -> Split Into Grid ... Set 80px for width and height and click OK. Go to View -> Guides -> Make Guides

Change the Snapping Tolerance in the Preferences. But honestly if 2 pixels is too large a distance, you should be zoomed in viewing the pixel grid, because the only smaller increment is 1 pixel which the pixel grid handles.

As far as I know, there isn't one. Adobe Illustrator has the same "issue", and Affinity shares many (if not all) shortcuts with Illustrator. The only way is to click the snapping button on the menu.

Prevent, detect, connect, or align -- Nope Trim -- Yes. Extend the paths beyond the curve. Select the paths and the curve Grab the Shape Builder Tool Hold down the Option/Alt key Drag across the extended paths. There's no way to prevent or detect misalignment on a curve that I'm aware of. And there's absolutely no way to "connect" a path to the ...

Here is my approach. I think the best way to snap objects is snap point in Edit mode. Let me show: Here two objects I want to snap, you can see a little gap between them: Select one object, triangle in my case, press Edit mode in toolbar menu. Now shape is in editing mode, select upper point and check position of it: Select rect and activate ...

You might want to check that you don't have the option "Align New Objects to Pixel Grid" checked in the Transform panel (under the submenu in the upper right hand corner). See the image below for further explanation on its placement.

Probably because there is one more object behind the rectangle, you want to snap with. If this is not the case, go to preferences --- Preferences> uncheck select object by path only

That image is doing nothing but confusing me. Not sure how it relates to anything, however..... Draw your path with the Pen Tool. It will snap to guides. When the path is drawn, select it and click the brush you want to use. The brush will be applied to the path. As for standard brushes, no. They won't snap to guides. The freeform drawing tools (Brush, ...

I'm not sure what version you're using, but I've seen some unreliability with symbols aligning properly in versions CS5.5 and back. I've had to rebuild them from time to time to get the pixels back on track. One thing that can cause problems is when type defines your symbol's upper or lower boundary. Fonts have some issues with obeying pixel boundaries. I ...

Make certain Align to Pixel Grid is checked in the Symbol Options.

In the Transform window, make sure Align to Pixel Grid is checked. This will force things to snap. EDIT Make sure you have a shape selected for the checkbox to work. If that still doesn't work, go to the Transform menu and check Align New Objects to Pixel Grid and replace your image. Also as AdamSchuld mentioned, you can set this setting when creating a ...

When you open one of the grids system template, the layers are setup in this order: Baseline Grid Sidebars Columns The blue color guidelines are actually lines drawn in the Baseline Grid layer. They are not the Guides. So any layer objects you move near them, it will not snap. They are just visual guides use for align vertical spacing of elements. We ...

Sorry, no. There is no way to disable snapping without physically choosing the menu items. Good feature request though. It should be like Photoshop... Control/right-click to temporarily disable snap.
