Snap to grid doesn't work at artboard edges
Snap to grid is ignored at artboard edges.
See animation attached.
It makes me cry.
Hi Everyone, thanks for your comments. Re-opening it based on the feedback.
not resolved in 25.2.3
Philip Byrne commented
Still happening with version 25.2, seven months after the bug was reopened and under review.
snap to grid doesn't work for me anywhere on the artboard, objects, lines, etc all bounce each other away i can't get anything to align like in previous versions of illustrator
Oh well, another problem that's existing well over 2 years. Can't wait for the next affinity update.
Still an Issue in 24.3
If I need perfect alignment to edge I stop the shape 1 Grid BEFORE the edge and move it manually with the arrow keys...
It is driving me crazy on a daily basis.
The same issue happens btw when moving a shape ALONG the Artboard edge, it does not snap. So yeah, I move it one grid away from the edge, move sideways with mouse where I want it to go, and hit the arrow key to align it back to the damn egde.
Duuuuuude, snapping doesn’t work because the artboard edge is messing up the snap.

This is maddening. I definitely want snap to grid working on artboard edges.
Not working in 24.0.3
Avinash, it does not

This is still an issue at 24.0.2 version. Please, this need to be resolved.

The issue appears to be that the snapping is still broken when the cursor is near the artboard boundary, but is working when the cursor moves far enough away. That leaves a very tiny area where the behaviour works as desired.
I've recorded a video demonstrating how this issue is simultaneously fixed and still broken: https://twitter.com/kitgrose/status/1224137775949025280
NO THE PROBLEM IS DEFINITELY NOT SOLVED, and I'm still experiencing this at 24.0.2.
It's not fun anymore Adobe.

Bug is absolutely still active. Running latest Adobe and Mac OS.
This bug is still active. I’m using version 24, and objects still snap to the artboard!!

Yep. The problem is not resolved. I'm running 23.1.1 This has been an issue for YEARS now. FWIW, my workaround is to build my artboards larger than I need to and creating a locked layer where I draw a box for my actual "artboard."
I'm on version 23.1 and this issue is still occuring.
This is so frustrating that I cannot drag the edge of my artboard to snap to the edge path or anchor of an object. With smart guides on, I drag and release the artboard edge when smart guide displays the words "path" or "anchor", but it does not actually snap to that path or anchor. I zoom in to see that it is way. These two screenshots show art board appearing to snap to an Anchor point and then a 34000% zoom of the misalignment. Please for the love of god fix this.
