You mean, in the main menu:
- View / Snap to Guides
- View / Smart Guides
Thanks for the reply, but I'd found those and tried them already and it doesn't affect the snaping to objects sadly. Thanks anyway.
Not sure I understand the problem. If you uncheck Smart Guides, you should not have any snapping behavior when dragging near other objects.
Are you adjusting the Transform Origin using the Transform tool? There is snapping behavior back to the element you're manipulating, and maybe this is what you're seeing? If that's the case, try adjusting the Transform Origin from the Properties Panel to get it exactly where you want it.
That's great! It was the Transform Origin issue as you described. That worked a treat. Thank you.
