Grid alignment Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Sometimes I find that Omnigraffle doesn't snap to grid cleanly e.g. shapes will be slightly mis-aligned even through snap to grid is turned on.

I suspect that this may be because I have alignment and distance guides turned on which take precedence over snap to grid?
Without seeing the document, I'd bet dollars to donuts that it's the smart guides, they are very aggressive.
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
I've noticed that "snap to grid" seems to apply on a page-by-page basis. If I copy an element from a page with it turned on, I have to be sure I turn "snap-to-grid" on in the destination page before I paste. I'm not sure why snap-to-grid isn't global. Maybe it's just my copy, but I've learned to work with the assumption it's only relevant to the page you're on, not the entire multi-page document I may have created.
