I'm creating an image that has a lot of complex shapes and, after I draw each, I'm tweaking all the control points to make sure that they're spot-on. Because the area is saturated with things to snap to, I'm having to hold down the command key to disable snapping for almost every control point. Is there a way to toggle snapping so that nothing snaps to anything while I'm drawing these?

P.S. You all deserve a pat on the back for having shapes don't get bent out of shape when you add a new control point. It's amazing how many drawing apps get this wrong.

Pixelmator Pro > Preferences > Rulers has a few different spacing and sizing guide settings and, in your case, turning off "Show guides at object edges" should probably help (at least it seemed to help in my quick test image).

P.S. Thanks for the pat on the back!

Thanks, Andrius. I'll give that a go.
