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

Hello,
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.
RUNNING THE MOST CURRENT VERSION OF ILLUSTRATOR CC, I UPDATE FREQUENTLY.

    Try:                           
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My iphone will not connect to wifi no matter what i try.HELP

    my iphone will not connect to wifi no matter what HELP

    Have you tryed to restore the iPhone too ?
    Restore the phone in iTunes using a backup, and if needed as a new iPhone, without using a backup.  However, the greyed out WiFi is often due to a hardware failure requiring replacement of the phone.
    This may help http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/ipod_touch_user_guide.pdf

  • IPod Touch 4gen will not connect to wifi no matter what

    My white 8gb iPod Touch 4gen will not connect to wifi, I have reset the network and the entire iPod. When I got it for Christmas 2011 it worked perfectly for a few months then all of a sudden it stopped connecting, every connection I try to connect it to says the same thing; unable to join network... I am getting fed up, my first gen iPod Touch will connect to the wifi no problem, but the thing is it keeps crashing. I can't use it for more than a couple of minutes and it goes back to the home screen. If anyone could help, it is greatly appreciated!

    Try the following to rule out a software problem:                 
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Power off and then back on the router
    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings
    - Restore from backup. See:
    iOS: How to back up
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    If still problem make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

    Your DVD won't eject?
    Restart the MacBook - as it is restarting, hold the trackpad button down. This will force it to eject. The disk should eject before you get to the login screen or desktop.

  • FOR ANYONE WHOS IPOD WILL NOT APPEAR IN ITUNES NO MATTER WHAT YOU TRY!

    Hey Guys i suffered from this problem for a frustrating three weeks before i tried somthing completely random and it fixed my problem.
    My ipod would appear in mycomputer and itunes would even open when connecting my ipod but would not appear in the menu. TRY THIS!
    1. goto start menu
    2. Click control panel -> Administrative tools -> Computer management.
    3. Click disk management under the storage tab.
    4. Right click your ipod (must be plugged in and possibly in disk mode) and select format.
    5. In the file system tab select "FAT" NOT "FAT32"!!, select 'perform quick format' and click ok.
    After this step my ipod appeared in itunes as a corrupt ipod!
    6. In itunes restore your ipod since it is now on the menu.
    THIS FIXED MY PROBLEM!! i hope this helps anyone with the same problem. :D!!!!
    It is really hard to find a real soloution for problems like this instead of the old "reinstall itunes" I REALLY HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU!

    We are fellow users here on these forums, you're not talking to iTunes Support nor Apple.
    Have you created a new account or updated your existing account ? All content that you download from the store is tied to the account that downloaded it, so if you have created a new account then all of your existing downloads will remain tied to your old account.

  • It will NOT RECOGNIZE MY IPHONE NO MATTER WHAT I DO

    wont recognize phone

    1. Make sure that your device is not hidden (left hand pane). If it just reads device then toggle between SHOW and HIDE.
    2. Try all the other ports on your computer, even a number of times.
    3. Make sure your lead /connections are not faulty.
    4. If you have another computer try plugging your device into it without taking any action, give it a moment, remove it and try it back in your other computer again.
    5. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed.
    6. If using Widows, make sure all Windows Updates are installed.
    7. Failing all that, see here - http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538 for Windows and http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1591 for Macs
    8. And failing all that put the device into Recovery mode. See here and note the paragraph 'If you restore from a different computer.... ' down near the bottom of the page -

  • HT201263 my phone just shut off and will not come back on no matter what I do. It was working fine then just went compeltely dark and is unresponsive. Help!!

    My phone was working fine, then just went completely blank, and now is totally unresponsive

    Plug it in to mains power for at least 15 minutes.  If it doesn't automatically come on, try a Reset... press the home and sleep/lock buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.

  • Adobe Illustrator CS6 will not open.

    I have a problem: the illustrator app will not open. I get the pop-up: To open "Adobe Illustrator CS6" you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime. Click "More Info..." to visit the legacy Java SE 6 download website.
    Both clicking "More Info..." and "OK" only make the pop-up disappear, but lead absolutely nowhere.
    From Oracle.com I have already downloaded and installed 'jre-8u25-macosx-x64.dmg'. After install and restart i keep getting the same pop-up as before and i still can't open Ai. Any advice?

    hi,
    I updated from mavericks to Yosemite today which was a very bad idea. I had issues with my internal sound adapter and the system start is now very slow. I might going back to mavericks..
    However, I wish the above link you gave here would work. After clicking the blue download button nothing happens. Any other idea how I could go back from my actual java 8-31 back to java 6?
    Thanks, H

  • Adobe Illustrator Draw will not export to desktop Illustrator with the photo layer turned on.

    Adobe Illustrator Draw will not export to desktop Illustrator with the photo layer turned on. This severely strains my workflow and makes it incredibly hard to add the image after it is exported to the desktop Illustrator. Is this being fixed??

    This is a new bug in our latest release, and we apologize for not catching it before it went out. We are putting together a patch to address the issue. The only workaround at this point is to delete the photo and then send to Illustrator again.
    Thank you,

  • Illustrator 10 will not open

    I recently purchased a new pc and it comes with Windows7 Operating System.
    I have Adobe Illustrator 10.03 and it worked perfectly with Windows XP my earlier operating system.
    I also recently purchased Adobe Acrobat 9 PRO and I'm hping this is not causing my Illustrator to not work.
    Now that I have an updated operating system, Windows 7,  my Illustrator 10.3 does not open whn I clic on it.
    Instead  the Illustrator screen appears or a few seconds and then disappears.  I've tried to repair and modify but still no luck.
    Anyone know why my Illustrator application will not work?
    Thanks.

    Emjayy,
    It could very well be a preference corruption.
    You may try to  Move the folder with Illustrator closed (click Move the folder when you have followed the link).
    This is a reversible way of resetting the preferences to the defaults; they are not reset when you uninstall and reinstall.
