Problem with data frame alignment
I'm using the Align tools to align the corner of my dataframes and labels.
I first snap my data frames to my guides and then align the labels to the top-right corner
As you can see on the attachment, the data frame isn't right on the guide even though it is snapped to it. When I align the label to the corner of the data frame, it is right on the guide (but wasn't snapped) which tells me there's something wrong with my data frames.
I have other graphic items in my map and the snap works fine. It's only a problem that occurs from time to time...
Do you have any idea why?
Mapping Center Answer:
So, saying that the guides and snapping works better than it ever has, isn't going to be helpful. In fact I learned not to use the guides years ago (when snapping to them behaved even worse). What I do instead is use the Size and Position tab (in element and data frame properties) and do my positioning by the numbers (if you've ever used ArcPlot, it's pretty much the same thing, only you're using dialog boxes instead of AML). That's the only sure way to get the sort of layout you're doing to align exactly.
