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.

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). ...

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.

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

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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.
