Snap to Grid allows you to set the amount an element will move with a click of the arrow keys or a turn of the rotate button. In SBC 2.0, you could set an amount as small as 1/16 of an inch, but in SBC 3.0, the smallest amount is 1/4, which is not as helpful (to me, anyway). But, also in SBC 3.0 you can make grids automatically, so its kind of a trade off. I use it more for rotation now than I do for alignment. I still use the align ribbon all the time, too! It really just depends what you are working on and what you get used to doing. One of the beauties of SBC is that there are so many ways to do the same kinds of things!

Kris, the main thing you are missing is that these instructions were written for SBC+ and you are using SBC 3, so things are changed somewhat. Try using the 'soften edge' filter under Filters on the Format ribbon of SBC 3.

Hi Peggy, The technique you suggest will work for some titles, but not all. Try it and see what you think on several different types of titles - fancy fonts, word art, short titles, long ones... None are perfect, but sometimes it's nice to have a little bit of an outline. Thanks for suggesting!
