Here is a quick tip.

There is a feature which in some occasions is very very useful. Say for instance, every item needs to be exactly spaced apart by an exact measurement no matter what? Good for consistency.

But sometimes you need to work with things in a manner which feels like photoshop’s layers where you have multiple layers – sometimes in the double or tripple digits, which make up a single “entity” (ever created an icon for a pencil?)

Well the snap to snaplines can make someone like me want to throw something at my screen, hoping that it’ll get to the program!

The solution? Turn off snap to snaplines – or set its snaplines meter down.

You can find this under Tools –> Options. Going to the options brings up the options window. Locate on the left the submenu Artboard.

Modify to suite your needs.
