Silhouette Troubleshooting: Can't Move Design Around Studio Freely

Today I'm answering a reader question on the blog.    The question comes from Fay who writes:
"I recently updated my Sil software and now I am unable to move my image over the tiniest fraction to the left/right/up/down with my arrow keys like I had been able to before the update. They seems to jump about by cm and not mm anymore. Is there a way to fix this? Did I mess with the settings somehow?"
Fay's not the only one's who's had this issue.  I've heard from a few people and actually experienced it myself so I thought it was worth a quick tutorial because there's an even faster fix!

First it's important to point out it's not an issue or a problem...it's a setting. Specifically, the Snap to Grid settings are what cause a design to only be able to move by a certain distance and not freely.

For instance, when Snap to Grid is enabled, these two bucks can be at either of these two distances apart...but the program won't allow me to get them any distance in between.

To turn Snap to Grid off, open up Silhouette Studio and click the Snap to Grid tool along the top toolbar.  Uncheck the box for "Snap to Grid."

Now your designs can be moved freely and at any distance. The shapes and designs will slide around the work area rather than jump.

And now I can move the two bucks to any position I desire.
