AD: How to snap selection to grid?

Recommended Posts

Affinity Designer1.5.0.14 (windows version)

I can't figure out how to snap my selection in Pixel Persona, to the grid, I need that because I created an object and i want to center that object base on the selection, let say that I made a square with selection and I want horizontal and vertical center to inside the selection (square)

Hi adirusf,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

There's no way to snap pixel selections to the grid (only to the pixel grid enabling Force Pixel Alignment in the main toolbar). Instead of a pixel selection, have you tried to use a vector rectangle shape?

Use it to mark the area you want to "select", place your other object over it, then use the Arrange icon on the main toolbar to align the object vertically and horizontally with the center of the rectangle.
