When I try to use the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator to draw around individual shapes in detail the pen jumps away from where I have selected, as if it is restricted. For example see the image below, if I click where the star is, the pen tool lands beside it rather than on it. I need this for precise outlines, is there a way to configure it or the likes?
This is most likely caused by having snap feature enabled.
Make sure you have snap to grid turned off View → Snap to Grid (Ctrl/Cmnd+Shift+")
