<->Running Object snaps in AutoCAD 2012, it lets me snap to first point, but if second point is the same as the first, it will snap to second point. All of the other snap points I have set show up, but not the object snap I snapped to in the beginning.
The problem is my running object snaps. I have them set to intersection & midpoint. If I go to copy a line, circle, etc., and I use the midpoint as 1st snap point and I want the 2nd point of the copy to be another midpoint, it will not automatically snap to the midpoint. I have to actually select snap on the midpoint with the middle button. When I hover over an intersection, it will hightlight the intersection & I can snap to that point, but not the midpoint like I want to. It is the same with using the int, insert and so on running object snap.
Certain things can jamb running osnap (and even osnap overrides). I am not sure any apply to you. Zoom scale, overlapping linework, too many running snaps, and sometimes just wierd lack of finding. Sometimes drawing order of objects affects it. Other times, osnap will completely ignore xlines in xrefs. This doesn't happen to you all the time does it? If so, report a bug with repeatable steps and send the problem drawing as an attachment. I report bugs at autodesk.com/submitbug.
