Snap to page edge

With this function you can snap objects to the page edge(s) (Figure 13). A combination with snap lines and snap to grid is also possible.

Snap to object frame

With this function you can position one drawing object on the frame of another. The connection point can lie anywhere on the object frame. If you want to use this function you should deactivate “snap to grid”. Figure 14 shows some examples of this function. Take note that a typical object frame 'touches' the frame of a round object at only one of four points.

Snap to object points

This function operates in a similar manner to the one just described. The difference is that the connection point can lie only at one of the four corner points of both the object being moved and the target object. This leads to the situation where two round objects have a 'connection point' which does not lie on either object but at one of the red circled points in Figure 15.
