I am using version 4.4.9. I want to know how to snap drill to pad automatically. I can aligned the drill layer layer but some drills are not aligned properly. This is due to drilling file have some error. Some drills are shifted by 3-4 mills from the pad. Can I snap these drills automatically with respective pads?

There is not a specific feature to snap drill to pad, however you can use the command Align Layers (located in menu: Edit Align Layers) to align the drill layer with any other layer that contains pads.
To align drill layers to pad: 1. Go to menu: Edit | Align Layers... 2. Select a reference pad (usually closest to the board origin). 3. Now select that same drill hole which is meant to be over the reference pad (you selected in step#2 above). The entire drill layer will be moved to align with the pad layer.
Note: I understand that your drills may have some errors in location, so we will make a specific function to automatically snap all drill holes to pads, and have it available shortly.
