Chapter 8. Basic Tasks: Use Layout Tools > Specify snap alignment settings

Specify snap alignment settings

Snapping offers a way of precisely placing an object on the Stage by having the object affix itself to other objects and alignment tools. You’ll specify snap align settings to show horizontal and vertical guides, which will assist you in placing art on the Stage.

1.
Select View > Snapping > Snap Align to set this option, if it is not already selected.

2.
Select View > Snapping > Edit Snap Align.

3.
In the Movie Border text box of the Snap Align dialog box, enter 30 px (pixels) to snap objects to a 30-pixel Stage border.

4.
Verify that 10 pixels appears in both the Horizontal and Vertical Snap Tolerance text boxes.

Snap tolerance determines how close an object must be to another object or alignment tool before it snaps into place.

5.
Click OK.
