Each Object can have its attraction to Snap Points enabled or disabled using its context menu.

Placing Snap Points

There are two ways to place Snap Points; attaching them to the table and attaching them to Objects.

Table Snap Points

With a Snap Point Tool, clicking on the table surface will place a point in that location.

Additionally, if you click on an unlocked Object, a snap point will appear at the Object's center point. This feature makes it easier to place points accurately so your Objects are positioned correctly.

Object Snap Points

With a Snap Point Tool, clicking on a locked object will place a point in that location on the Object.

If you unlock the Object after the Snap Point is attached, the Snap Point will move with the Object.


Moving Snap Points

Once a snap point is placed, you are able to move it by mousing over it, holding left-click, and dragging it into position.

Besides moving and rotating Rotation Snap Points, this is the only way to modify existing Snap Points.


Removing Snap Points

With the Snap-Point Tool selected, left-clicking an existing Snap Point will remove it.

To remove all Snap Points, click on the trash can icon in the Snap Point sub-menu. It becomes visible when selecting the Snap Point tool.
