Handles in CC2014 do not snap to grid

Hi All,
when I draw with the Pen tool I use the snap to grid option. In older versions the Handles also snap to the grid.
In CC 2014 this is not working anymore. Does anyone have the same experience?

  • Illustrator CC will not snap to grid, no matter what!

    I apologize if this seems a redundant post, I've read many people asking this but have seen no definitive answer, so I wanted to simplify the question and see if we can get a real answer:
    I'm using Illustrator CC, and snap to grid DOES NOT WORK FOR ANYTHING. For instance, if I try to draw out a rectangle, the top left corner will not snap to the nearest grid where I start to drag it out. For another instance, if I use the pen tool, it WILL NOT snap to grid. To be clear, I have "snap to grid" checked under the view menu, and do not have "snap to point" or "smart guides" turned on. Alternatively, any combination of these being on/off still will not yield a snap to grid. I have also experimented with the "align new objects to pixel grid" under the "transform" window on and off, which did not help either. Even with that checked on, existing objects will not snap to the grid. In short, nothing snaps to the grid - this is occurring on 2 different computers, one at home, one at work, both running the same version of illy CC. I don't get it, it seems like there are a lot of people having this problem but I cannot for the life of me find an answer, it seems like a life-or-death option that should be available, I know that I am lost without it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
    As a caveat to this, I have tried most every option under preferences, so unless you know of something hiding deep, I doubt that changing a preference is going to be the solution here. Thanks all!

    Thanks Larry,
    I have seen this posted as a solution, but to be clear it is not just a matter of rectangles not snapping, NOTHING will snap to the grid. Not a rectangle, not an existing object, not the pen tool, nothing. Even if I create a rectangle and go through the steps of expanding it to get rid of this new "live" feature, it still will not snap. So, I'm afraid that rectangles are not the culprit here, and I know from reading the forums that others are having the same issue with snap to grid simply not working at all.

  • Rectangular marquee does not snap to grid even though snap to grid is checked under view

    Hey all,
    I cannot snap to a grid even though snap to grid is checked under view > snap to > grid. Unless I am zoomed in all the way, when I drag marquee, it always snaps two pixels above or two pixels below where I'm trying to snap to grid, which is the green line I created. I don't know if this is a Photoshop bug but it's clearly not snapping to the grid for me unless I am zoomed in all the way, but then at that point, I have to drag it across the whole document and because I'm zoomed in so far, it takes several minutes.Any reason why snap to grid not working in PhotoShop CS4?
    Thanks for response.

    it always snaps two pixels above or two pixels below where I'm trying to snap to grid, which is the green line I created.
    Green lines for the Grid? Did you change the color in the Preferences specifically?
    And your use of the singular »line« is a bit suspicious – are you sure you are talking about the Grid and not Guides?

  • Does Not Snap To Grid!

    it seems that since I upgraded to GB3, my "SNAP TO GRID" has stopped working. Is there a way to increase its sensitivity?

    "005. 4. 1.399" mentioned in a conversation?
    It isn't because that dependent on tempo. The change is Snap behavior is yet another reason I don't use GB3
    also: I notice at times the playhead turns orange or red. What causes that?

  • Pen tool: handles snapping to grid not functioning

    Since it was not answered by the Adobe Illustrator CC staff, I'll ask again:
    I use the handles snapping to grid functionality extensively when creating icons and other detail-intensive shapes. How do I re-enable this feature, or is it necessary to revert to an older, more functional version of Illustrator?
    This is very frustrating, such a simple feature and, for no logical reason, it has been removed from Illustrator. Makes me regret updating and paying for Illustrator CC.

    there was a discussion on this when the feature was first removed. did you see it? I think a support staff member posted in it, but nothing positive...
    edit: yeah, it was just people complaining and the staff guy stating that this was indeed the case.

  • Restore snap-to-grid behaviour for path handles

    one of the new features in AI CC 2014 is path handles ignoring any grid. However, when one wants to construct C2-contious joins between seperate objects, precise control over the handle position is needed. I do a lot of icon and sprite art, and there it is imperative that curves from differnent objects flow exactly the same to create a smoth transition between individual pieces.
    How can one restore the ability of handles to snap to the grid like in previous versions of AI?

    First of all, let's just hope Adobe fixes this issue in the next version. My workaround:
    1. Turn on Snap to Grid and the Grid and using Guides create your own grid. Tedious work, but handles actually still snap to the intersection of Guides.
    2. In the Preference panel, choose your Guides color to match the Grid color. This way you won't notice the difference.
    3. Turn off the Grid but leave Snap to Grid on for easy anchor placement.
    4. Name the layer you did this on 'Grid' or something. Do not lock this layer, otherwise this improvised 'handle snapping feature' won't work.
    5. Create a new layer on top of your 'Grid' layer. This new layer will be the first layer to work on.
    6. Save this file as a template to do your linework on.
    Keep in mind that the 'Grid' layer isn't locked, so you could accidentally drag a Guide out of place...
    Hope this helps!

  • [CS3 - Win] Smart Guides not showing up when Snap To Grid enabled

    Has anyone else encountered this bug?
    AI CS3 13.02
    Smart Guides are turned on, but hovering over items does not show the cyan hints, snapping to anchor points / paths etc does not work. This only occurs when Snap To Grid is enabled. If you then go and turn it off, the Smart Guides start working again as expected.
    Is this a known bug?

    Thanks for the reply Mike. Smart Guides work perfectly for me provided Snap to Grid is turned off.
    I can see there being a conflict between snapping to grid and smart guides in CS3 - which takes precedence? From a UX perspective, if these two snapping modes are mutually exclusive, there should be at the very least an alert letting you know the other mode is disabled; the menu item should be greyed out. Or if it's truly an either-or situation, then the menu needs to be revised such that both snap to grid and smart guides are within the same submenu, and only one can be selected at a time, toggle with CMD+SHIFT+OPT+U.

  • Fluid Grid Layout Div's not snapping correctly?

    Hello, how come my fluid grid layout div's are not snapping correctly?
    Here is a picture:
    As you can see, the div tag "iphone1" is halfway in the other column. Shouldn't it be snapping to the nearest column? My mobile layout snaps perfectly fine but my tablet and desktop do not. Is it because my div tag "iphone1" is in another fluid grid layout tag "main-body"> Can you not place div's inside of div's with id's?
    I would appreciate any help as I am sure I am doing something wrong that can easily be fixed.
    Also, it is possible to change the number of columns you want for each design view after creating the page? For example, I have 20 columns in desktop view, it is possible to change to 16 if I wanted to?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi dhint4,
    Hope things are working out for you while using new Fluid Grids.
    To answer your question around nesting of elements :
    12.2 upgrade of DW fully supports the Nesting of different fluid elements within other fluid element.
    Infact it also supports insertion of non-fluid(normal) element within fluid elements.
    This was not available in 12.0 release.
    Only caveat while nesting is not to apply same class on both Child and Parent unless the the width of both is 100%.
    Also, it is possible to change the number of columns you want for each design view after creating the page? For example, I have 20 columns in desktop view, it is possible to change to 16 if I wanted to?
    Currently its not possible to change the number of columns on the fly. We already have couple of feature request to support the same.
    Please feel free to add your vote by creating a feature request @ :https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
    Kindly revert if you have any issues or concerns.

  • Snap to Grid behavior not working?

    I recently upgraded from CS3 to CS6. To my eyes, Illustrator's Snap to Grid functionality is either broken—or I'm not understanding a (new?) option.
    Use case: I set-up a grid with 1/8" spacing. I paste a 1/2" x 1/2" object from another file, or just copy and paste an existing one in the same file. I want it to sit, say, 2" from the top, and 4" from the left edge. In CS3, I could just use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the object around, and its edges would precisely snap, as expected, to the grid, with no muss or fuss. If it was an uneven size, the edges would snap, making it easy to at least align the left and top edges (for example) where I want the object to sit.
    In CS6, this really just plain doesn't work—either with arrow keys, or moving the object with the mouse. The objects are always—ALWAYS—some fraction "off" in one direction or another. And yes, I know it sounds like the Snap to Grid is off, but it's not. The object moves by increments of the grid (1/8" in my example), but the object is not grid-aligned, and cannot be made to be. I can arrow-key the object all over the workspace and it won't snap properly. The only way I can find to accurately position the object is open the Transform dialog, and enter the measurements by hand.
    Quite honestly, that's a pain in the butt, and it's made literally everything I do in Illustrator take roughly twice as long. This is improvement?
    I am hoping I "just don't get it." That there's an option mis-set somewhere in here. Maybe it's related to moving from Windows on CS3 to Mac on CS6, who knows. What I do know is I'm starting to hate Illustrator every time I have to fire it up these days.
    Anyone else see this? Anyone have any idea how to fix it? File a bug report?
    ADDED:  In playing with this just after my original posting, it appears that the described issues occur only with groups of objects. For example, a 1/2" x 1/2" icon composed of a square for its outer dimensions, with some other stuff layed on top, then grouped, and moved as a whole. (Although whether it's grouped doesn't actually seem to matter—an ungrouped, multi-select of the same sort behaves the same way.)

    Use Preview Bounds didn't help, but your raster effects question got me wondering... I am using a rounded corner effect in every instance where I have observed this. At least with a couple of quick tests, removing the rounded corner effect via the Appearance panel seems to have kicked it into expected behavior. Interesting.
    I'd still make a case that this is a bug, and to the best of my recollection, it is NOT how it worked in CS3; I use the rounded corner effect pretty regularly... I would certainly have noticed this "in the old days." 
    Thanks for the clue. I'll find a way to deal with this knowing where the issue seems to be. I also just filed a bug report on it; I feel strongly that it is one.

  • Photoshop CS6 Snap to Grid not working.

    Hey everyone,
    I recently acquired Photoshop and wanted to try my hand at some pixel art, but I can't get the snap to grid to work.
    The pixel grid works fine - which is great, when I'm making something tiny, but I am trying to draw with a 5 size pixel, and my grid won't work.
    The brush still snaps to the pixel grid - and I have no idea how to change the preferences for the pixel grid, slash turn it off, slash anything.
    I tried turning off the 'Snap to vector and pixel grid' in the preferences menu, but it is still snapping to the pixel grid.
    Please advise?

    New to GarageBand 3, the ability to work without the snap to grid. Now the snap to grid feature only works if the song position read out is set to musical time. (see the little icon of the note and the icon of the clock next to the song position info in the main control bar.)
    Switch to musical time to get the snap to grid to work.
    If this is already set, then something else is wrong.

  • Snap to grid not working

    I am going crazy with the snap to grid function not working. I have read through all of the topics I could find on the forums and nothing has worked. I am working on a huge grid with a shape needing to be snapped into each space and nothing snaps at all. I have tried the un-tick align to pixel grid, the un-tick align new object to pixel grid...nothing works. None of the shapes align to the grid.
    Please, has anyone any suggestions of what to do next? I cannot envisage moving a thousand shapes into a grid accurately manually...
    Suggestions will be much appreciated!

    If they are jump in then you are snapping to something. Usually snap to pint is overridden by grid.
    Do a view >> show grid if you have not so you can see the grid.
    A screenshot would help, so we can give you good advice.

  • Hi.  I have Snap To Grid and By Kind enabled in Lion but it's not working.  When I trash an icon, instead of snapping the remaining icons to the By Kind grid, a space is left where the trashed icon was.  Any suggestions on how to get Snap To Grid working?

    Where are you talking about the Desktop?
    I don't see where it is possible to set both Snap to Grid and By Kind they seem to be mutually exclusive.
    And then
    If I have Snap to grid set I get the behavior you describe. If I have By Kind set the icons stay together and close up the space from the deleted icon.

  • Have anchor points snap to grid changed?

    My anchor points used to snap to the grid when using the pen tool on a 1px before in Adobe Illustrator CC 2014. Has this changed for this version?
    If not, does anyone know how I would be able to enable this feature again? I have all my snap to grid settings etc. on.

    THIS IS REALLY FRUSTRATING (and I'm not the type to use all caps all over the place).  Here are the repro steps (in case that were helpful):
    Illustrator CS6
    Turn on snap to grid.
    Create a circle.
    Drag out each of the handles closer to the corners of the circle's space.
    Notice that the handles snap to the intersection points on the grid.
    Illustrator CC (18.0.0)
    Turn on snap to grid.
    Create a circle (move it around to double-ensure that snap to grid is functioning properly for the shape).
    Drag out each of the handles.
    Notice that there is no way to ensure that the handles move in the exact same amount all the way around the circle. They do not snap.
    Try the scale tool. Select a point and hit ‘s’, then drag out a handle. Notice that it still doesn’t snap to point.
    This sort of thing is suicide for Illustrator. It’s the one program that should let you make whatever vector shape you want without having to resort to crazy workarounds. How can we make awesome things like this without the kind of control we used to have in Illustrator?
    BTW, there's another thread on this topic too:

  • I am trying to organize a zip file with a bunch of links and files. But when I drag an image file to a folder, it always "Snaps to grid" instead of just landing where I put it.

    I am trying to organize a zip file with a bunch of links and files. But when I drag an image file to a folder, it always "Snaps to grid" instead of just landing where I put it. All of the files are going into the same zip file but I want them visually in the space that I put them and not at the bottom of the snap to grid folder location they are looking like.  I am trying to  drag and drop files in groups so that I can group them for now, but image files always do their own "sort by" when I drag them from my web pages. Links don't do it though.  I tried resetting the folder, and deleting the DS files. No luck.

  • Why doesn't the desktop 'snap to grid' work with Snow Leopard?

    I've recently upgraded my OS to Snow Leopard and I do a lot of work with photo folders which I keep organized on my desktop. Since upgrading the 'snap to grid' function in the view options of the desktop preferences has stopped working. For some reason the folders and files on the desktop keep snapping off the screen or on top of each other so that I cannot find them easily. I've had to turn off the 'snap to grid' and the desktop no longer looks organized and is not easy to navigate. Why is this happening? AND, how do I fix it? It seems to me the snap to grid shouldn't have gone out the window with an upgraded OS. I'm very organized and borderline OCD so this is FRUSTRATING me to no end!!!
    Anyone have any ideas?

    It's working for me in 10.6. Try moving this file in your Home Folder/Library to the trash -- don't empty it yet.
    When finished go back to the Desktop>View Options and select Snap to grid.
    If that doesn't do it, open Terminal in utilities and copy/paste this command, then hit return. Don't attempt to type it in by hand. If you make a typo or get the spaces wrong, there could be a disaster. When finished go back to the Desktop>View Options and select Snap to grid.
    rm ~/Desktop/.DS_Store
