Here it says when using "snap to grid", that it snaps when I am within 2 px of the grid

When the object’s boundaries come within 2 pixels of a gridline, it snaps to the point.

How can I change that? I want to move objects in smaller steps than that.

  • I find its related to your ZOOM level more than the pixel size of your artwork - IE 2 SCREEN pixels - so try the same zoomed right in. – Digital Lightcraft Jul 29 '15 at 7:23

Change the Snapping Tolerance in the Preferences.

enter image description here

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 thought this was only for the smart guides. I'll try it out later, thanks. – gartenriese Jul 29 '15 at 7:52
  • This did not help unfortunately. I changed my grid such that I have a gridline every 80 px with 4 subdivisions. That means the smallest boxes are 20x20 px in size. I changed the snapping tolerance to 2 px. However when I e.g. move an anchor it snaps to the grid all the time. – gartenriese Jul 29 '15 at 17:57

    Never mind, I figured it out. If you activate "snap to grid" it always snaps to the grid! – gartenriese Jul 30 '15 at 19:33
