I’m pretty sure holding command while dragging a layer used to disable snapping and smart guides temporarily, but now it shows a little down arrow next to the cursor and does not disable snapping.
Was this an intentional change, and is there a way to momentarily disable snapping?
Are you able to share a screenshot or recording of what you’re seeing?
Yeah here’s a video

Are you unable to reproduce this? You just hold command while dragging a layer and you’ll still see smart guides.
No, there was no feature like this. You are probably confusing it with holding Cmd/Ctrl when resizing the object to ignore constraints in the frame you are resizing. When you drag objects with Cmd/Ctrl, it forces them to nest in frames underneath, even if the object is larger than the frame. Hence the arrow icon.
This should be a feature, go vote for it here!
Couldn’t agree more. Photoshop has had this ability for (checks watch) 15 years? I’ve been clamoring for it in Illustrator for about the same length of time, apparently into the void. Don’t be a void, Figma, this feature is a no-brainer!
This fonction is available in sketch, illustrator, photoshop, protopie and much more…
Why not in Figma… Essential for sketching icons and tiny symbols.
