Sometimes when I hold an object and move it around in a canvas or an artboard, it can snap at the vertical and horizontal centers. For a while it's not been snapping when I do that. I have all the options for snapping turned on yet it doesn't snap to center. Maybe I've disabled something accidentally. Would just love to get that back. I've since had to use ruler guides or arrange which are longer to me than simply just snapping to center.

Margins are self explanatory; "spread" is equivalent to canvas or artboard size.
