 +====== Snapping ======
 +Snapping helps you precisely place components, widgets, shapes, and paths. ​
  
 +When snapping is enabled:
 +  * Guidelines appear when the item that you are dragging is aligned to other items. ​
 +  * When dragging items, it is easier to place them in aligned positions.
 + 
 +You can disable snapping if it prevents you from placing items where you want them.
 +

 +
 +===== Snapping to Components =====
 +Snapping to components helps you place components in relationship to one another.
 +
 +To enable or disable snapping to components:
 +  * Choose **View** > **Snapping** > **Snapping to Components**
 +
 +{{:​dglux5_wiki:​snapping.png?​direct|}}\\

 +===== Snapping to Vertexes =====
 +Snapping to vertexes helps you precisely place paths. It works for paths created with the {{:​dglux5_wiki:​177_icn-tool-path.png?​nolink|}} [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​tools_panel|Path]] tool and the {{:​dglux5_wiki:​179_icn-tool-polyline.png?​nolink|}} [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​tools_panel|Polyline]] tool.
 +
 +To use snapping to vertexes:
 +  - Enable **View** > **Snapping** > **Snapping to Vertexes**.
 +  - Create two paths using the {{:​dglux5_wiki:​177_icn-tool-path.png?​nolink|}} [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​tools_panel|Path]] tool.
 +  - Change to the {{:​dglux5_wiki:​191_icn-tool-select-path.png?​nolink|}} [[dglux5_wiki:​workspace_and_workflow:​panels_and_menus:​tools_panel|Path Selection]] tool.
 +  - Drag a point from one of the paths. The point will snap to other points in both paths.

 +
 +===== Snapping in Dataflow =====
 +Snapping in the dataflow helps you place dataflow blocks.
 +
 +To enable or disable snapping in the dataflow:
 +  * Choose **View** > **Snapping** > **Snapping in Dataflow**
 +
 +{{:​dglux5_wiki:​snapping3.png?​direct|}}\\
