I'm having trouble getting "magnetic" to work. Whenever I pull down the menu, "magnetic" is grayed out. Any ideas?

Please, and thank you!

Have you selected the shape around your notes?

Ah! Clearly, something so simple! No, I'd been selecting the background shape and all it contained. It's working for me now, clicking only on the background shape.

Many, many thanks for a quick and easy solution to my problem! :D
