I'm working on some business cards that I'm pasting into a document and the document has guides for the placement of the cards but I'm having a difficult time in getting the card (has a border around the card that is the size of the card) to snap to the guides.
i.e., I get it close to a guide but no "snap", I end up manually lining them up by tweaking the numbers in the X and Y fields.
I've tried it with both Smart Guides on and off -- In InDesign snapping to a guide actually works better with Smart Guides off, but ID actually has a menu item that says "Snap to Guides" where AI (CS4) does not.
What am I missing?
Make sure snap to point is the only snap you have on, View>Snap to Point. If the card is snapping to the page edge try making the page larger temporaraly as see if the card snaps correctly. It always helps if you mention what version of Illustrator you're working in. Zero your ruler too, Double click in the upper left corner of the ruler where there is a white box.
