Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

Hi everyone,

So currently the snapping/guides in Pixelmator Pro stopped to work altogether for me, and I have no idea why. The edge/center guides in the canvas are working, but not between objects/layers. I checked all my options:

- View > Guides > Show Guides: all checked
- Preferences > Rulers > Smart Guides: checked

I even uninstalled the entire app and the guides are still not showing. Any help is appreciated.
