Control point curves snapping

I am trying to turn off grid snapping when I place points using the control point tool for creating a curve. I make sure all snapping is off, even “disable all” is checked, but it still snaps. Any solution? Thanks

Grid snap is different from object snaps. To toggle snapping to the grid on/off, click the button labeled “snap” at the top of the screen window…

That works thanks. The weird thing is that I need to hold down the shift key in order to stop the line constraining to a linear move. I thought it was the other way around and holding the shift key constrained it?!

The shift key is a toggle for Ortho - if it’s enabled, it will temporarily disable it; if it’s disabled, it will temporarily enable it…

Many thanks
