PowerPoint 2010: Snapping still happening even after turning off


In PowerPoint 2010, I have turned off "snap objects to grid" and "snap objects to other objects". However, when I draw a line and it goes close to certain points on the perimeter of another object, it still automatically snaps to that object. For example, if the object is a rectangle, it will automatically snap to the halfway points down each side of the rectangle (which appear as little red squares when this happens). How do I prevent this behavior so that there is no "snapping" altogether?

These red dots are called "connection points". I don't know of any way to disable them, but you can override them by holding Alt while you draw.
