Is there a setting in Illustrator 9 that lets you snap to Guides, and if possible set the snap sensitivity?

I know it's possible for Smart Guides, but I can't find it for normal ones.

As far as i know, you cant. Guides will snap to objects, but objects wont snap to guides. You can use the grid however and that does allow for snapping.

The problem with the grid is that it's snapping my object from the corners. I want it to snap from the objects centerline.
Any idea how to do that then?

Just use smart guides and drag from the center anchor points.
