Snapping Objects

You can activate the snap features and then create, edit, and move shapes to precise locations. As you move objects the selected Snap To options will automatically align the physical feature of the object according the snaps selected.

  • Point to Snap and select Snap Toolbar.
    • The Snap To toolbar appears.
    • You can drag the Snap To toolbar to your toolbars at the top or side to dock the toolbar.
  • Select the desired Snap To features.
