FH11 Snap To Guides - Macromedia Freehand

The snap to guides in FH11 don't seem to work at all. I have snap to guides checked but when I position an object near my guides it doesn't seem to "jump" to the guide like in Photoshop. I can't really tell the difference between having them snap to and not snap to. Am I missing something?...

    You may want to change the snap distance in Preferences/General. (Snap
    distance cannot be greater than Pick distance.)

    Check to see if you have other snaps, such as object, grid or point
    overriding the snap to guide. I know of no way to set a preferred order of
    active snaps.

    If you're on a Mac, turn on snap sounds in Preferences. You'll be able to
    hear if a snap 'took'.

    Also be aware that vector paths snap, not edges of Vector Effects or outer
    edges of strokes.

    In freehand MX our whole department was having the same problem. I have
    discovered a work around for this problem.
    ? Open the keyboard shortcuts menu in the edit menu
    ? Find the snap to guides action. Under View > Guides > Snap to guides.
    ? In the Press new shortcut key box assign the action a new key sequence. (i
    chose shift + command + ') on a mac. Any key command that is not already
    assigned will also work.
    ? Click the assign button and click OK
    ? Now snap to guides will now turn off and on.
