    I am using a MBP running Parallels 3.0 with a XPs2 VM.

    When i look under mouse properties in the Control Panel, the "snap to" buttin is checked but does not work when running my VM - anyone else have this issue?

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    Nothing. Must be a very low priority item but I cannot believe no one else has complained about it...

    this is a very normal and helpful function- although MAc doesnt have it either-- I had to buy software to do it

    Hello,

    "Snap to" functionality is going to be set in the next Parallels Desktop version.
    Please sorry for making you waiting.

    Best regards,

    When do you think the next version arrives? Or will it just be a tweak to build 5582?

    Hello,

    The next build is supposed to be released in January. It will include a number of fixes for the build 5582 (copy-paste issue, first of all).
    The next version is not expected to come this month, so the "Snap to" functionality is not going to be added quickly enough. Please sorry.

    Best regards,
    Xenos

    this continues to be a simple request - can my six year old try and fix it for you guys at parallels?

    I can see problem, when Parallels Tools are installed,
    Quick workaround is to uninstall Parallels Tools, meanwhile we are looking in problem.

    why would you uninstall parallel tools - won't this strip the system of other functionality?

    the real issue is that your company has been promising a solution to this problem for over two years - suggesting that each new build will have a fix in it - simply put, why hasn't it be done and when will it be done?
