Snap to Point/Path and Smart Guides
Absolutely need the option to toggle on/off Snap to Point to enable the ability to drag an anchor point close to another and have it snap to that point.
Yes, and avoid the current issue where when we try to joint 2 paths and the points are very close, inevitably Illustrator joints both paths but creates 2 points one on top of the other.
This current behaviour forces us to delete one of these two points if we need to adjust that point - unnecessary loss of time in addition to the inconvenience. This happens all the time, and I mean hundreds of times a day
Hey adobe team, hep us to take this feature to the next level.
How about if we move one point close to another point from a different shape, with the snap turned on the point not only snaps perfectly, illustrator could pop a message that says “ join both points and connect both shapes ( yes,no )
If we just want to snap, one tap on NO is easy and fast enough, one tap on YES is powerful to save a lot of time. And why not adding a preference in case some users prefer a simple point snap functionality?
This would really really help. What does everyone think? Isn’t this. Super-killer improvement?
Yes that snap to path doesn't exist is really strange, it's such a base feature, just like erase to intersection. And make the whole experience with the program feel more chunky and clumsy.
I do a lot of illustrative line work that requires for paths and anchors to “intersect”. I end up having to go back on the desktop and tweak every point (can’t have gaps) after working on the ipad app. This would be super helpful and reduce the work time.
Yes, this is an essential of illustrator to snap to point, please add!!!
Aligning objects to one another could be improved a lot. Points do not snap to other points or paths when using the pen tool or when moving points around. The Smart Guides as they are now seem to only handle the outside box of objects? It's hard not to produce gaps all over the place as it is. I'd suggest an option like "snap to point" and "snap to path" (or both in one at the very least)?
