Snapping points / smart guides

Recommended Posts


First congrats on the new application. I started in iDraw, then moved to Illustrator which I have been learning for the past several months.

I saw the magnet icon and checked what was available but still wasn't able to snap a point on a circle to my path. Maybe this feature is not fully implemented but snapping points to paths and other points would be very valuable I think (with my limited experience). Also, in Illustrator, it tells you if you're over an "anchor" or something else. This feature would be helpful to ensure more precision.


Thanks and again, congratulations and best of luck!

I think Ben is looking at overhauling snapping - it already has a lot of functionality, but most of it was disabled for beta because it wasn't quite right, so I think (hope!) you'll be pleasantly surprised when he's had a look at it and re-enables it in all its glory! :)
