Snap to Grid status doesn't save with the document
Most document preferences seem to persist between sessions, but Snap to Grid turns itself off. I can reproduce this consistently:
- Enable snapping, snap to grid, and grid view.
- Close the document to save and quit Illustrator.
- Reopen the document. Snap to Grid will appear checked in the preferences, but points and artwork don't actually snap.
- Turning snapping off and on again will show Snap to Grid checkbox as being unchecked. Smart Guides remains checked when you do this, which makes me think this is a bug.
Got it. A number of people who miss the branch is quite high, sorry.
I confirm that, the option unchecks itself on relaunch.

iPad, not mac. Hence the Illustrator (iPad) Bugs forum.
I can’t confirm that.
When I save a document with Snap to Grid on, and then relaunch Ai, the options stays checked and it actually works — artwork snaps.
Which version do you use? You are on a Mac, 10.15.7, correct?
