Turn Off Guides and Snapping?

Recommended Posts

I'm just starting to use the new App Store version, and while trying to draw with the pen tool, it keeps trying to force me to use guides and snapping points.  I can't find in View where to disable that.  Please let me know, because it won't let me lay down a point where I need it to.  It keeps wanting me to snap it somewhere else!  Thanks in advance!

You can turn snapping on & off using the snapping switch on the toolbar (looks like a horseshoe magnet) or temporarily while drawing by holding down the alt/option key.
