Illustrator will not let me align my art manually
I am working a normal piece(s) of art. I did one exactly like this yesterday on the same artboards, different client. I am unable to manually align the art to the artboard or the bleed guides as shown first image. I decided to shutdown Illustrator and the PC and then start them again. When opened I tried to move the art again and it still will not let me align the art. I disposed of the art on the artboard. Opened the clients art, copied it and pasted it in my layers to the artboard. Again I tried to manually align the art, I experienced the exact same issue. I created a new artboard, the issue still persists, image included. I have included all system information including AI settings incase this helps define the problem. Need a fix fast.
When did align to Pixel Grid become an active part of Illustrator? I finally discovered what was preventing me from aligning my art properly, it is the bloody abusive tool called Align to Pixel Grid. I am sure it is great for some artists, but for those of us who have to be precise it is an absolute pain. Is there a way to turn it off and on in preferences instead of adjusting for each piece of art/artboard I create? If not please get rid of it.
