Simple enough, I can't find where I disable the 'Snap to Grid' functionality in Visio 2010. Help is, as expected, unhelpful.

This was easy in Visio 2007, but I just can't find it in Visio 2010!

I havent experienced this in 2010 but have found this information if it's any help.

On the Tools menu, click Snap & Glue.
On the General tab, under Currently active, make sure that the Snap check box is selected.
Under Snap to, select the options that you want, and then click OK.
The Ruler subdivisions, Grid, and Guides options are useful for positioning and aligning the shapes.

Best Regards
Lee

Thanks, however the first hurdle is finding the 'Tools' menu. There isn't one in 2010..

Aha, found it eventually!

There is a little Arrow icon in the bottom corner of View..Visual Aids, which lets you turn off various options like this.
