Do you have any tips with working with Smart Guides? Usually, they are fantastic. But in projects with a lot of objects, it kind of goes crazy — snapping to every nook and cranny of objects I don't care about on the other side of the page
Is there any sort of fine tuning I can do? How do I get Smart Guides to ignore certain layers? Are there any 3rd party plug-ins that do it better?
Emil and Kurt,
Indeed the Smart Guides see the locked things, but they do not snap at them like crazy dogs, which seems to be the issue that Navarro wishes to get rid of.
And velvet guides are nice and soft and gentle.
Still no show where you are (http://forums.adobe.com/people/Jacob%20Bugge)?
unlike the smart guides in AI 10 the current smart guides do recognize a lot more about surrounding objects without first having to define reference points (as in AI 10).
That may now indeed cause a fireworks of smart guide's insights and that can be distracting sometimes.
Probably it's an auspicious idea to add an option that would allow you to ignore locked layers and items.
