Right on, Irene! That's exactly it. I've even been through the options in the quick access toolbar before and tried this but it didn't seem to work. Maybe one of the Windows updates corrected something. Anyway, I tried it again and it works as it should. Thank you for the great solution.

I am having the same issues. It's so frustrating. I have used publisher since Publisher 98 came out and never had problems like this one. I've tried all sorts of things, including 'snap to ruler' commands. None of them work. Why is it that every time Microsoft update the Office package they manage to leave out many of the good features that were in the original software? Meanwhile, I am going to reload Office 2007. I'm also finding it difficult to 'save as' in Word 2010. Where it used to be very simple to modify a document and use 'save as' to save it with a new file name, it now seems quite complex and requires several steps. I have even managed to lose files.

AHA! I think I've found a solution to the alignment problem! From the HOME tab, click on 'Align'. Select 'Relative To Margin Guides'. Then whenever you draw a text box etc, it will snap to the margin. This works regardless of whether or not you have the 'snap to ruler marks' box checked. I hope this help those of you who have become quite frustrated by this issue.

GEWB,
Your solution worked for me (MS Publisher 2010 v.14). The trick in your instruction was to make sure "All Commands" was selected from the pulldown. Found the "snap to ruler markers" listed, added it, works great! The "no snap" has been driving me crazy for weeks. Whew!
Thanks,
CB

Irene -- "Snap To" in Publisher 2010

Irene ... This is a reply to an o-l-d thread, but if it hasn't been solved, I hope you will be notified. As other respondents have said, you must go to the Home tab ... Options ... Quick Access Toolbar, and under "Choose Commands From," open the drop-down menu and select "All Commands." Scroll down and click on "Snap to Ruler Marks," click on the "Add" button, and then click on "OK."

This will place the "Snap to Ruler Marks" feature on the toolbar at the top of your page. It does NOT, however, automatically enable that feature. You then have to place a tic in the check box to the left of that command to activate it in your document. Only after placing the check mark will the "Snap to..." function. I hope that you've already discovered this feature, but if not, perhaps this will help.

I know what you mean about the Snap To feature being valuable. I use it not only for alignment, but also for centering objects on the page (feel free to ask about this if you want). Good luck with Publisher 2010.
