In Draw, objects can be positioned to grid points, to special snap points and lines, to object frames, to single object points, or to page edges. This function is known as Snap. In this manner objects can be very accurately positioned in a drawing.

If you want to use the snap function it is much easier to work with the highest practicab zoom value. It is possible to use two different snap functions at the same time, for example snap to a guide line and to the page edge. It is best however to activate only those functions that you really need.

Examples for setting up the snap functions are found in Chapter 10 (Advanced Draw Techniques).
