I have disabled snap to point under View and also the Smart guides are off, however it still snaps to points
Can't find how to turn this off for days.
BTW align to pixel grid is also off!
Thanks in advance!
Which version, which system?
What exactly is happening?
Illustrator CC2017 (2017.0.2)
When using pen tool and creating new points the cursor snaps to points of other shapes although "Snap to point" under view is disabled and Smart Guides are off.
If necessary I can do a screencapture to show it.
In that case open Preferences > Pen tool and anchor point display and turn off snapping there.
Here's a screenshot for Monika's suggestion. Do share if that resolve your issue.
I had the same problem and the 'Answer' did not help.
...What did help was disabling "Highlight anchors on mouse over" in the same Preferences section.
Unchecking that box had no effect for me either and I feel like it absolutely should have. Not to mention the other couple places where you can turn snap to points off. The snapping was driving me crazy. "...What did help was disabling "Highlight anchors on mouse over" in the same Preferences section." Thanks a bunch
Yes! Thank you. My biggest wish is for there to be ONE place to toggle snaps, please!
Thank you! This worked for me too!
In the new version for CC 2018, this section in the preferences tabs no longer exists and I still can't remove the snapping problem even though I have removed the snapping from View> Grids and Guides and unticked Snap to Guides! If anyone has a solution for this please let me know.
