    When you are routing or moving components around try to hold CTRL, it should disable the snap to component hot points and snap only to grid.

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't see the second page of the topic and actually posted the same reply as Robert

    Try press CTRL and hold it down. That may help.

    JohnsonMiller I believe, mairomaster answered your question. They changed number of default settings ...

    From the preferences, try PCB Editor -> General -> Display Popup Selection Dialog.

    Robert, thank you for your comment, I went through documents and recovered some features,
    However an issue still exist. Consider a sample PCB with components on both sides, in old AD when you make a click a small selection menu appear helping to select proper component, while in new AD, you have to keep mouse pointer in absolute stationery and with each click it cycle among components, very boring and inaccurate process. Any help?

    Draftsman is incredible tool! I am very impressed. Finally I can create pretty drawings inside Altium

    Another issue appear on PDF export, color in PDF is different from PCB and setting color from dialog box does not fix the issue, have to import from PCB and need to do it twice to see the effect!!!
    Sometimes setting up the color before the xport in Altium TOOLS panel helps. Did you try to set it up there? Here is an example of setting it up to "Altium 3D Blue":

    I think updating the defaults was a good thing. There were many legacy options which are not used nowadays and also many options which by default are not the way the most people use them. Before I needed to change lots of the default options to be comfortable, now I don't need to change that many. I can see how it could be more of a problem for people which relied heavily on the old default. For me it took just 15 min to go through the changes list and re-adjust a few things.
