Why does snapping not work in Ableton

This program has insane flaws.

Why is it so hard to snap clips to the beginning of a bar?


No matter if snapping is on or off, no matter what the fixed grid settings are, clips never drop on the 1 when you're trying to do so; zooming in shows how off Ableton is consistently: GARBAGE.

Ironically the fastest way to get a clip to line up with any given measure is to turn the fixed grid off and move the clip onto the one manually by zooming in a ton.

how many more version will come out before Ableton understands that people aren't trying to drop clips somewhere slightly before or after the top of a measure?????

    I agree that snapping is frankly borked in ableton 9 and 10.
