Weird snap to zero problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just wondering if there's anyone out there who's had this problem? From time to time, when either moving text with a grip, or placing a dimension, or drawing a line or whatever, AutoCAD just randomly decides to snap to zero, zero. I might be miles away from zero, zero, but it still snap me there. The only way I can get around it is to turn my OSNAP off, do what I have to do and then turn it back on again. REALLY annoying. I'm using ACAD 2008, but I remember having this problem on earlier releases too.

 

Any ideas?

I sometimes get this when I have the INSERT snap running.

 

Some blocks are badly created and have their insert set at 0,0 rather than on one of their graphical elements and these can throw you to 0,0

Nice 1! That's exactly what it was. All of my x-ref are inserted at 0,0, so it must always snap to the insertion point of those.

 

Thanks!

yes, XREFs would probably do it too. I don't use them very often.
