Thanks for the link. What they're discussing in the 2007 and 2010 versions of Publisher apparently doesn't exist in my version of Publisher 2010 (version 14.0.5128.5000).
I have checked these locations:
HOME | ARRANGE | ALIGN
Nothing there about "snap to"
PAGE DESIGN | LAYOUT | ALIGN TO
This has check boxes to "align to" guides and objects. It isn't the same thing as "snap to". They're both checked and apparently give me the red alignment indicators that aren't worth much.
PAGE DESIGN | LAYOUT | GUIDES | GRID AND BASELINE GUIDES
Nothing here that addresses "snap to"
CUSTOMIZE QUICK ACCESS TOOLBAR | ALL COMMANDS
There was one command, "Snap to Ruler Marks" but it doesn't seem to do anything that I can tell.
The tabs across the top of my page are:
FILE, HOME, INSERT, PAGE DESIGN, MAILINGS, REVIEW, VIEW, and ACROBAT
When an object is chosen, two more come up - FORMAT DRAWING TOOLS and FORMAT TEXT BOX TOOLS. Again, I get alignment choices but no snap to.
In the other thread, Suzanne S Barnhill posted this:
In Word 2007 (and perhaps therefore in 2010 as well), there is a Grid
Settings dialog that can be accessed in numerous ways, but the only way to
access it without selecting a drawing object or the like is via Page Layout
| Arrange | Align | Grid Settings.
You can also use Format | Arrange | Align | Grid Settings on the Drawing
Tools, Organization Chart Tools, Chart Tools, Diagram Tools, SmartArt Tools,
Picture Tools, WordArt Tools, and Text Box Tools contextual tabs.
Regardless of how accessed, the dialog has a check box for "Snap objects to
grid whenthe gridlines are not displayed."
For the life of me, I can't find "Snap objects to grid when the gridlines are not displayed" anywhere, even following her directions because under "Align" the only option I find is "Relative to Margin Guides."
I appreciate all your help, but it's beginning to look like loading Publisher 2003 may be in order here.
