Can Illustrator snap clipping groups to grid using the clipping path?

Mar 9, 2013 2:24 PM

I want to be able to snap a clipping group to grid so that the clipping path snaps to the grid, not the masked paths. Is this possible?

    You could always release the clipping mask and position it individually or draw guides that align with the grid...

    select your clipping group with the Selection Tool (black arrow), then switch to the Group Selection Tool (white arrow with the + sign), then pick up the Mask by the anchor you wish to Snap

     

    for instance, to snap the top left anchor
