Chapter 1. The Flash Authoring Tool > Working with Snapping

Working with Snapping

Flash’s snapping feature helps you align objects as you position them on the Stage. With Snap turned on, Flash forces the edge or center of an object to sit directly on top of a user-defined grid or guide line as soon as you position the object within a user-specified distance from that line. Flash can also snap objects to other objects or to the intersections of a 1-pixel-by-1-pixel grid.

To snap objects to user-defined grids:

  • From the View menu, choose Grid > Snap to Grid, or press Shift--apostrophe (’) (Mac) or Ctrl-Shift-apostrophe (’) (Windows).
