Summary:

QuarkXPress lets you create a "magnetic field" around guides so that when you drag an item close to a guide, it automatically aligns with it. This feature is called Snap to Guide (View menu) and the width of the magnetic field is called the Snap Distance.


You can also choose View > Snap to Page Grids to force items to align with the master page grid. The value in the Snap Distance field applies to master page grids as well.  


Solution: 


To control snapping with QuarkXPress controls,


Navigate to View > Choose Snap to Guides.


To specify the distance, 


  • Choose QuarkXPress/Edit > Preferences > Print Layout > Guides & Grid
  • Enter a pixel value in the Snap Distance field.
