    Can't snap to point/path

    Robert Heyer

      I have recently moved to Illustrator CS4 from 10 and I do a lot of technical drawings.

       

      The problem that I am having is that smart guides and snap to point does not seem to work as well as it did in version 10.

       

      In 10 I was able to select an object's path with the direct selection tool and I was then able to snap it (it being the point of the selected path) to another objects path (curved or flat) or anchor point.

       

      In CS4 I can only snap a selected anchor point to a flat path or established anchor point.

       

      Loosing this feature my be a deal breaker if I can't fix it or at least better understand it. Help
