Snapping to Grid
For some reason, all the objects on my grid keep snapping to grid, although the icon is off. And no, I'm not holding "J" :p. Can anyone tell me what the problem is here?
Nobody felt like avenging your death. Sorry.

Well to begin with, holding the "J" key wouldn't do anything unless you changed the default settings. To snap to a grid you hold down the "X" key.

However, I would check your move tool settings to see if you have discrete move turned on. That could act like snapping to a grid.
