Snapping to Alignment Guides

Alignment guides are not just visual aides. You can make the Transform tool as well as various drawing tools snap against them.

The following are tools that can snap against alignment guides:

  • Transform
  • Select
  • Contour Editor
  • Perspective
  • Brush
  • Pencil
  • Stamp
  • Eraser
  • Rectangle
  • Ellipse
  • Line
  • Drawing Pivot

When you're using a tool that supports snapping, you can enable snapping by clicking on the Snapping button in the Tool Properties view. Some tools support several types of snapping other than snapping to alignment guides.

NOTE When you enable or disable snapping to alignment guides, it is enabled or disabled for all tools that support it.
