Thank you for posting.
Dynamic guides could be causing the snap to behavior you are experiencing.
From the User Guide:
"When you drag objects to move, resize, or position them on a layout, dynamic guides appear near or on the objects to help you create and edit them more precisely. Dynamic guides also “snap-to” the upper and lower boundaries and the centers of objects as you move, resize, or position them."
If you disable dynamic guides, do you then get the desired behavior?
How do you turn off Dynamic Guides? (Arrange:Object Grids is unchecked)
Thank you for the post.
To turn off Dynamic Guides:
1. Choose View > Layout Mode
2. Choose View > Dynamic Guides
Once you click on "√ Dynamic Guides" the option should uncheck.
There is no "Dynamic Guides" selection under the View Menu. I'm using FMP Advanced 11..0v4
Thank you for the reply.
Dynamic Guides were not a feature in FileMaker Pro 11. The original poster was asking about the feature which was added in FileMaker Pro 12.
