Hi, I really don't know if this is the right way to place questions or

First of all, 2 things about your post --

1. please don't post HTML, just plain text. It took some time to find

2. make the subject line informative - such as what I've done

how are you seeing this problem?

Snap to guides, when activated, will not pull in objects already on the

Help us know what you are trying to do as you sense this is not working.
