Snapping is optional in Pixelmator Pro! You can temporarily disable it by holding down the Command key or turn it off completely by deselecting all the guide options under View > Guides.

Bad idea ...
Snapping is not optional, currently .. because it's always ON ...
the disable is Optional ...

Thx the tip !
in my scene, no guides ... but the ruler is problem.

But i think, this reverse concept is not god ...

In View > Guides, there are four options:

• Show Guides at Object Center
• Show Guides at Objects Edges
• Show Relative Sizes
• Show Relative Spacing

If you turn off all four of those, snapping will be turned off app-wide.

Ok.... i understand ... but why turn off / on all these ? when i want to draw without snapping ?
The standard method in all program, is :

a) dedicated snapping ON/OFF toggle command-menu entry-shortcut
b) the snapping is optional, when is needed ... and hold down the key until is needed..

the snapping is rarely needed !
