Alignment guides are not just visual aides. You can make the Layer Transform tool as well as various drawing tools snap against them.
The following are tools that can be made to snap against alignment guides:
|Layer Transform||Select||Contour Editor|
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.
- In the Tools toolbar, select the animation or the drawing tool you want to use.
In the Tool Properties view, double-click Snapping and, in the drop-down menu, select Snap to Alignment Guides.
Snapping to alignment guides is now enabled for all tools that support it.
