Pen Not Snapping to Perspective Ruler, need help.

  • Hi,
    I often have this problem and am wondering how to fix it. The "snap to special ruler" button doesn't seem to work sometimes when I am using the pen tool. Every so often I will create a perspective ruler, use the pen tool to draw and it will snap correctly, but when I disable the snap to do some painting and come back and hit the "snap to special ruler" again, it will not snap. I made sure to use the pen tool every time I need to draw while snapping to the special ruler. I have to restart my perspective lines again from scratch when this happens, which is hard to match up and really annoying. Help!

  • I am guessing the ruler has switched to inactive and is green rather than purple. Click the ruler with the object tool and near the ruler mid point there is a little diamond.... click that and it will turn active (purple) again.

  • Ok, didn't realize it has to be purple. Now it is working.
