Magnet behaving differently on Layouts

Anonymous
Not applicable
Two projects open, one began by me, one began by a co-worker.

When I switch to my project, the magnet behaves as I always experience it in all windows, including layouts: Hover over an item long enough it turns color ready for selection; hover and hold shift it turns color immediately ready for selection; hover and hold shift then tab to rotate through multiple items if present.

When I switch to his project (even though I've edited and saved as another name) everything works the same EXCEPT ON LAYOUTS: when on a layout hovering makes no change until I hold shift and then hit tab.

I have made sure to apply my profile in both projects (which includes my Prefs, Shortcuts, Tools and Workspace Schemes) to no avail.

Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

That sounds like you have the master layout settings toggled to
Display Master Layout : Above Layout. (just above the Drawing Placement section)
Flick it over to Below Layout and it should be all golden from there.
