I'm having a problem with the display of snap points, even though OSNAP is turned on.
I have selected several OSNAP modes (endpoint, midpoint, etc.) it is ON and so is OSNAP Tracking.
Snaping to points works, however, I can see what I'm snapping too. The, endpoint, midpoint, quadrant, or intersections are just not appearing on my screen. I'm sure it's a system variable, but what is the variable, or where can I find a toggle.
Solved! Go to Solution.
After searching for nearly an hour. Under Options -> Drafting (TAB) -> AutoSnap Settings: The top three boxes were unchecked Marker, Magnet and Display AutoSnap Tooltip were off SOMEHOW. I know I didn't purposely turn them off.
Ok, so my AutoSnap Settings have the marker, magnet, and display autosnap tooltip boxes all checked but I do not have my markers. As mentioned in the original post here, I know where my selections are but there is no visual reference when making the selection. It's driving me crazy!
They were working the other day and now they are not. I have no idea why.
Also, once I've made an initial selection, say an endpoint, my next selection point shows markers for all osnap selected options. I just don't have a marker for my initial selection.
Soooo... Nobody has any suggestions?? Must just be an "AutoCAD-ism" then.
If it works before now it gave up and make you mad, how about repair or reinstall it.
You have Inventor 2013 & Autodesk Design Suite 2013. Because this is plain autocad group, maybe nobody have seen that problem before so you get no replies.
"They were working the other day and now they are not."
What changed? Did a Windows update occur? IT change anything on server? So many guesses for us to come to a conclusion. What you described isn't normal behavior.
1. Restart computer
2. Repair AutoCAD
Just two suggestions whithout further to go on.
@ Patchy - Yes I am running Design Suite 2013 but this is a very basic AutoCAD function that is not working as it was so I figured this was the proper forum to ask the question.
@Steve216586 - Nothing happened that would have caused this to change to my knowledge. IT did not do anything to the server, no unexpected shutdowns/computer problems, I restarted AutoCAD, I have restarted my computer, checked all settings that I know of, and still not back to where I was. This is the only thing that I have noticed that is not the same as it was.
We run custom lisp commands for our basic functions such as a line beginning at an endpoint. When initiating this command I used to get a marker at line endpoints, now I do not. But, when selecting my second endpoint I still get a marker.
