OSNAP Not Working Anymore

Kayla Wilson's Photo Kayla Wilson 21 Nov 2022


I was in the middle of building a dwg draft, when my "endpoint" (green square) stopped working and all I could see was "nearest".

I went to google and read a forum to try and change the "osmode" to 1 to get the endpoint square back. That did work and allowed me to find a line endpoint again. But now, I cannot bring that line to an intersection snap of another line.

I found a site that showed all the osmode numbers for ENDpoint, MIDpoint, CENter, NODe, QUADrant, INTersection, and so on... When I typed in the osmode for INTersection, I could get the intersection again but then the ENDpoint feature went away.

I cannot get back to the very convenient default of NANOCAD where OSNAP would get me both ENDpoint AND INTersection.

How do I get back to the default where I have both ENDpoint AND INTersection with OSNAP?

Thank you,

If you right-click on OSNAP button in Status Bar - what do you see?
It should be dialog with selected OSNAP modes. Also, check Snap settings in OPTIONS dialog.
When you create a New drawing - do you have the same problems with OSNAP?
Best regards,

Hi Seva,

Right-clicking on OSNAP was very useful!! I was able to click enable on all the feature sets I need (endpoint, midpoint, and center are what I was looking for). Thank you for suggesting this. It has fixed everything.
