“ALT” key temporarily releases guidelines and grid

Saturday 2 January 2010 @ 8:27 am

I have come to depend on Crystal’s Guidelines for aligning objects. I find them much more useful then the “Snap to Grid” feature, although I do use both from time to time. But there are often cases where the object needs to be somewhere in between. It can be frustrating to try and position an object while it jumps up or down because it is trying to snap to a grid point or a guideline.

If you run into this problem there is a handy solution. Hold down the “ALT” key while you are moving or sizing the object. The “ALT” key temporarily turns off both snap to grid and guidelines, without making any permanent changes to your settings.
