What is snapping?
With snapping, your annotations or cut and copied content snap into place to help you work faster. Drawboard PDF has two types of snapping:
Annotation snapping helps users align objects or annotations with other objects, such as lines, shapes and measurements. When you move an object close to an alignment point, for example a side, vertex, centerline or centroid, the object will automatically be "snapped" into alignment.
Annotations snapping can be switched on and off to suit the way you work.
Available to all Pro Plus and Pro Unlimited users.
With Content Snapping your cursor snaps to vectors of embedded content on-page like the edge of a floor plan or the perimeter of an object. This means you don’t need to rely on how you place an annotation with your hand; your cursor will snap into place to help you work faster and with more precision.
Content snapping settings:
Snap to line edges: The cursors snaps to the edge of embedded lines on your PDF
Snap to line midpoints: The cursor snaps to the midpoint of any embedded line on your PDF
Snap to line intersections: The cursor snaps to the point at which two or more intersecting lines meet
Snap to line endpoints (vertices): The cursor snaps to the endpoints of embedded lines and vertices on your PDF
Use any one or more setting/s to suit the way you work.
To update your content snapping settings:
- Navigate to Settings by tapping the Settings cog in the bottom left corner of the canvas
- Select the Annotation tab
- Scroll down to Snapping options
How to turn Content snapping and Annotations snapping on and off
From the canvas, tap the Snapping icon (you’ll find this next to the zoom controls in the bottom right corner of your canvas). Here you can toggle both Snap to annotations and Snap to PDF content on and off.
