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.
Steps to reproduce
Hope this helps.
Turn ON Smart Guides and all other snap settings to OFF.
Yup.. it's a bit backwards. You have to have smart guides active in order to prevent snapping to artboard bounds.
Ah, good to know =)
I still need the pixel snapping, so it's not a perfect workaround. Better than nothing, though.
