Can anyone tel me where to turn off or on the snap command in the pcb editor please?

The help is very helpful about what the snap is supposed to do, and there it ends....nothing to tell you where to find it. Sad

Thanks.

The 'Snap' command is only for the Footprint Editor at Tools\Footprint Editor ... once Footprint Editor is open 'Snap' is in the tool bar or in View\Snap ...
If you desire higher precision for grid placement of component/trace on the pc board editor ...
go to Options\System settings and adjust grid size ...
minimum is 0.5 mil (actual entry is 1/2) ... this is the 'snap to grid' for the board editor ...
this only works with a saved pc board file ... new ones revert to 'default' ...
pc board trace tips: it is easier to draw a trace from one pad out to a safe distance slightly longer than the next pad intersect point ... draw from next pad out to connect trace for pads (it will highlight) then simply click on the excess length trace and  delete it! If you desire only one layer bottom trace click on the box (towards right on top of pc editor) where 'default' square 'Top' (in red) is ... select 'Bottom' (green).
