Show/Snap Layers not functioning

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the snap function does not work when clicking to objects in other layers even when the Show/Snap/Modify is selected in Classes and Layers?

It works when I am Active in some layers but not in others.

Snap functions between layers will not work if your layers are:

- Not in the same view orientation (eg. Top/Plan)

- Different scales.

Check to make sure that you do not have either of these two conditions present.

Other possibilities are:

- That you are using different Classes and have Class Options set to Show Others or less.

- You have inadvertantly turned the Snaps off on the Constraints Pallete
