    Cannot disable snapping to artboard edges

    Teetow1 Community Member

      I'm creating SVG icons, and due to the removal of SVG as an output format for Save for Web, I've switched to having a series of 16x16 artboards for my icons. Problem is, no matter what snapping features I disable, my artwork still snaps to the artboard edges when I move it around (regardless if I use the mouse or the arrow keys). This makes it impossible to align artwork to such a small artboard, and it also seems like pixel snapping shuts off, causing mis-aligned artwork.


      Failed solutions

      • View menu >> Snap to Pixel disabled
      • View menu >> Snap to Point disabled
      • View menu >> Smart guide disabled
      • Transform palette >> Align to Pixel Grid disabled



      • Set Keyboard increment to 0.5px, which will round up to 1px in Pixel Mode. Keyboard nudging now behaves as expected, but mouse behavior is still erratic.
      • Use the Free Transform tool. It behaves slighly less erratically than the Selection and Direct Selection tool.


      Steps to reproduce

      • Create a new document, 16x16 px
      • Verify that you're in pixel mode
      • Create a 14x14 px square
      • Try and position it in the center of the artboard using the mouse or keyboard increments
      • Observe the artwork snapping to the edges of the documents, or bypassing snapping altogether


      Hope this helps.
