Illustrator: is there a way to toggle snapping while moving anchor points?
While moving anchor points around andâ€¦
you currently have Snap to Point and Smart Guides turned on and
you momentarily donâ€™t want the points to snap during this operation.
- You have to exit what youâ€™re doing (moving points) and
- your only choice is to visit View and deselect the particular snapping modes (or alternatively hit their keyboard shortcuts)
which is fairly disruptive.
Is there a way around this?
Any solution would do; workaround, plugin, custom hackâ€¦ that let's you toggle snapping on and off while youâ€™re moving points.
Sorry, no. There is no way to disable snapping without physically choosing the menu items.
Good feature request though. It should be like Photoshop... Control/right-click to temporarily disable snap.
