I'm not really sure how to ask this without having someone right next to me, but for whatever reason I'm having a really difficult time aligning objects with the guides. I've noticed a lot that when I scale something one side will snap to a guide and be completely flush, while the other side will snap but the bounding box will seem to be a hair off , or the image inside the box won't be all the way to the guide. I think this is what's throwing me off, it's only tiny fractions of any inch but it's noticeable to me. I could explain it better in person but does anyone have an idea of what I'm talking about?
edit: the project I'm doing- I've got a symmetrical object in the center of the document and I'm trying to mirror a sculpture on the sides of it. no matter if I snap the objects with the center of the the document, or the center of the middle object they seem to be off.
If something is a hair off and you have snap to enabled turn it off and align the thing that is a hair off.
thats sort of what I've been doing, I guess my issue is that I'm setting the guides for a reason, so everything is exact. And that way I can quickly snap it to the right spot. I'm really OCD and I know tweaking it manually, I'll end up obsessing over if it could be better. Is there a way to set guides by keying in numbers as opposed to draging them? I think it may have something to do w the pixels.
