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.

  • 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.

  • Smart Guide/Snap to point not working

    Hi
    I am trying to remove a circular shape from a rectangle in illustrator, the retangles width is 10px and the diameter of the circle is 13px, I centre the circle ontop of the rectangle ( or I appear to)  but when I use the Shape mode tool minus front, the circle is no longer centred ( see images)
    I have tried switching off smart guides and snap to grid and am still having the same problem.
    In the above image you can see once I have divided the 13px circle from the rectangle it has moved off to one side.
    Also when I am trying to manually place the circle ( rather than using the centre guides ) I can only move it by a large degree it alway moves further than I move the mouse, could this be because of a pixel grid? I do not think I am using this. ( can see in the above image where I am trying to place the circle and when I let go of the mouse, the grey circle is where it lands
    From the 2 images below you can see that there is a 1px difference on either side of the extracted circle I was trying to get centred
    I should mention that the 'Align to pixel grid' in the transform menu is inactive when I am trying to do this, as I initially thought that this may be the cause of my problems, but it made no difference

    Rebecca,
    So why does the minus front tool mess up alignment so much?
    No clue. I believe this issue has never been reported.
    At a first glance, it really looked like an Align to Pixel Grid issue, and also the fact that it works when both object widths have an odd (or even) number of pixels.
    But that is apart from the fact that you stated that it was off. If it were on, Align to Pixel Grid would apply to the circle, to the rectangle, or to both.
    Obviously, it is possible to (direct) select each and check. It is also possible to check the Y value of the centre for both in the Transform palette and see that they are actually identical before applying the Pathfinder.
    And if on, Align to Pixel Grid should also affect/destroy the Object>Path>Divide Objects Below way. And it should make it impossible to even place both objects centre aligned when one is an odd number of pixels wide and the other is an even number wide.
    As the issue is described, it may indicate some Pathfinder>Minus Front malfunctioning.
    It may be worth trying some of the following things (you may have tried/done some of them already) and see whether it helps (the following is a general list of things you may try when it is not in a specific file; 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences):
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer;
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, other items may also be relevant);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6, and reinstall.

  • Snap to beat - not working in big project

    I'm new to iMovie 09, so might not be doing something correctly. Any advice gratefully received.
    Aim:
    I want to animate photos to synch with music at the beat markers.
    *What I CAN do:*
    Create a fresh project, choose background music (then markers), drop in the photos, and it works perfectly.
    *What I CANNOT do:*
    I cannot reproduce this +within a larger project+, the pics ignore the beat markers (Snap To Beat is checked).
    The project is 23 min, mixture of video, photos, transitions, voiceovers (but no true "Background music", only audio clips that I've dropped onto vid/pics).
    I added a single pic at the end of this 23 min (to anchor the Music, it becomes purple and 'pinned'), add beat markers and then drop in the remaining pics). Chaos. Totally asynchronous.
    Am I missing something or is this an annoying bug?
    Thanks for advice,

  • 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.

  • Smart guides and snap to point not working in Adobe Illustrator CC 2014

    Hello,
    I am having a lot of issues with Illustrator CC 2014 and the Smart Guides. Every time I try and snap one object to another or snap an object to a guide, the object snaps either above or below the guide/object but never snaps correctly. This also happens when I am zoomed in all the way!

  • Override snap grid not working

    The Logic manual states:
    To override the snap grid 
    Do one of the following: 
    Hold down the Control key while performing the editing operation:
    The division value chosen in the Transport bar (1/16, for example) determines the editing grid scale at lower zoom levels (macroscopic or wide view).
    At higher zoom levels, (microscopic or close-up view), the editing grid scales by a certain factor.
    Hold down the Control and Shift keys while performing the editing operation:
    The editing grid switches to ticks if editing at lower zoom levels (macroscopic or wide view).
    At higher zoom levels (microscopic or close-up view), the editing grid switches to samples.
    This seems in conflict with the Prefs/General/Editing choices where the default for "Right Mouse Button" is "Opens Tool and Shortcut Menu", which is the behavior I'm experiencing when I try to drag a region in the Arrange Window while holding the cntrl key.
    Thanks

    Hi
    Click hold on the Region/Event, then hold down Control to partially disable Snap, or Shift Control to completely disable Snap

  • JQuery mobile layout grid not working after 4.2 upgrade

    Hi all,
    I'm running a mobile application on a hosted Apex environment which uses lots of jQuery mobile. The environment has been updated to 4.2 recently, and since that happened pages that I had setup to use the content grid, to show content in 3 columns no longer works, there only appears to be 1 column now. Code as below: -
    <div class="ui-grid-b">
         <div class="ui-block-a">Block A</div>
         <div class="ui-block-b">Block B</div>
         <div class="ui-block-c">Block C</div>
    </div><!-- /grid-b -->Item 1 has the following as the 'before label and item':
    <div data-role="fieldcontain"><div class="ui-grid-b"><div class="ui-block-a">Item 2 has the following as the 'before label and item':
    <div data-role="fieldcontain"><div class="ui-grid-b"><div class="ui-block-b">Item 3 has the following as the 'before label and item':
    <div data-role="fieldcontain"><div class="ui-grid-b"><div class="ui-block-c">with a closing </div> after each. This was working OK in 4.1
    Does anyone have any ideas what has changed that would affect this?
    Thanks,
    Mike
    Edited by: Mike, UK on Nov 4, 2012 4:20 PM

    Hi,
    I haven't completely got to the bottom of why this was happening, but I have resolved this after realising the ui-grid-b and ui-block-x elements weren't being rendered, seemed to be related to the 'Before Label and Item' label template item, if anyone else hits this.
    Cheers,

  • 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?

  • Drag feature not working after restore 10.4.11.

    I am using a 13" Macbook with OS X 10.4.11. After I was forced to use Restore to repair a missing Dock. I can no longer select/ Drag anything. Nothing in the finder window(desktop) or any other App.  It does not function on an external drive or in anyway shape or form.  I am not talking about the icon or file being stuck to the cursor and won't drop. I can not drag anything at all.  I can select(highlight) anything but I have to use the drop menu to move the items or export.
    I tried several things:
    Sleep/wake
    Restart/reboot
    Booted in Safe
    Verify and repair disk permissions as well as Verify Disk(checks out OK)
    Nothing appears under finder/view other than view options(other slections gray)
    Creating a seperate user account/switching back and forth
    not using any outside display software
    Finder/veiw options----Snap to grid NOT on
    Checking under finder/pref/Universal access/view/options/trackpad-Dragging checked.
    force quit finder.
    I was going to install SLeapord but lost the disks at an airport, and am outside the USA currently to order replacements.
    I am thinking the only thing I can do is to install to a higher OS via a Mac store or repair service but being outside of the USA makes this sort of sketchy(no genuine Apple store Local to me)
    Copy paste is not functioning.  Other than that...all apps are working correctly except for drag feature.

    Apple explicitly de-activated calendar support for Verizon V3c phone, certainly for a good reason. It is easy to re-activate that support but at your own risks.
    You will find the hack there:
    http://www.briantoth.com/razr_v3c/editmeta.php
    However, the page mentions:
    "Seems that synchronizing a small number of events may not show any problems, however, a large number of events may very well kill your phone."
    (this might explain why Apple did that)

  • Garageband 10.0.1 and Snap to Grid

    Hello again Garageband Gurus,
    While working on the new Garageband 10.0.1, I noticed that when I change the time intervals from "Beats & Project" to "Time" that snap to grid is greyed out.  Does anyone know how to to get snap to grid to work while using the setting "Time"? 
    Thank you,
    Rory
    PS - Also if there is a shortcut key to go from "Beats & Project" to "Time" that would be incredible?

    I think you already said this, but what I do is drag it from my desktop (or wherever it may be), into the track. Once it's on the track I open up the "Musical Typing" and then drag it from the track onto the key. I'm also having an issue with the legacy instruments. I wiped my Mac and reinstalled Mavericks along with Garageband and all the iLife stuff from the App store and now I no longer have legacy instruments even after restoring my $4.99 purchase. I won't use GB until I get the legacy stuff back.

  • Random keyboard shortcuts are not working with Yosemite

    I just upgraded my personal and work MacBooks to Yosemite and also updated my personal and work CC apps. Since then, I've had an array of problems. Random shortcuts, such as Cmd+H, don't work. On one of my laptops, I can no longer right-click in AI, and navigation in the app is jerky. Snap to grid only works intermittently. Any suggestions for this issue?

    Elizabeth,
    and also updated my personal and work CC apps
    Did you (actually) reinstall the applications after Yoesmite? That is recommended order/way, Yosemite being especially difficult.
    Also, you may need to update all sorts of drivers (including Wacom and printer).

  • 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.

  • 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.
