I have been experiencing the problem of elements not aligning properly.
I will try to do a fine tune alignment manually, however, I have discovered that the program does not allow me to accurately align any elements. They all seem to snap off alignment by 0.5 point/pixel.
I tried to turn off snapping at all levels, however, it still continues to misbehave. Perhaps I missed a switch somewhere.
I do not remember other versions of the program acting this way, so, it seems unusual.
Is there a way to around this, or is there some hidden control to fix this problem?
Thank you for your input.
In the transform panel flyout menu uncheck the option for Align New Objects to Pixel Grid. Additionally, select any objects you already have on your artboard and in the Transform menu uncheck Align to Pixel Grid.
Hope this helps!
Is there any way to change this default after the document was created? We have a few documents that must have had "align to pixel grid" set when created but was an oversight... I suppose a workaround is to create a new document and copy all the contents from one to another, but that workaround can get arduous if there are many layers and layer effects.
If you're having trouble when you copy layers from one file into another, ie the layers all collapse into layer 1 of the new file, just turn on "paste remembers layers" from the layers flyout menu. Then when you paste all of the layers will come over intact.
Hope that helps,
Is there any way to change the web preset so you don't automacitally have "align to pixel grid" selected on any new document?
