Tip 9: Clean Snap to Grid NOT Happening? Try this!

By Frank Smith © 2000

Have you had this happen to you. The select box and the item selected will not snap to the grid. It usually happens when I duplicate an item and then rotate or flip it.

 

Note example does not snap to the intersecting points of the grid.

Figure 1. 0/0 Grid coordinates.

One way to get the item back to the grid is to go to the upper left corner of the grid to 0/0 (Home position). See Figure 1.

Fig. 2 Return to Zero button.
If the corner is not at 0/0 click on the Return to Zero button.
See Figure 2.
