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.
Another way of doing it, using the new corner radius handles Draw a rectangle the width of your current circles Using the direct select tool (white arrow) hover on the rectangle. You will notice there are little handles inside the shape, close to each corner. These handles control the radius of the corners. Grab any of them and drag them towards the inside ...
I know this is not what you asked, but you could use a stroke with rounded caps for a "slash" design. Draw a stroke Change the stroke width to the desired width of the slash (the diameter of your current circles) Add rounded caps to the stroke (with the stroke selected open the stroke panel, click on the top right corner to expand options if necessary then ...
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 converting you vector to symbol check "Align to pixel grid".
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.
