yes I know about snapping but pressing alt+some click held longer, I selected something from those lists, and verts just snap whenever I try to move them, even if I enable/disable snapping , it still won't work, they just keep snapping and snapping and snapping ...

Hi,

I don't have maya open but at the top of the screen there will be 3 small square icons; snap to grid, point and curve. All you've done is accidentally activated one. Just click on it again and it will turn it off (to find it look for an icon with a magnet on it, it's either that one or it's next to it).

cheers

I knew that ... snapping wasn't enabled ...

Some option in the move tool named discrete moving was enabled and it acted as if snapping was on ...

sorry for all the fuss !!

best wishes and thanks again for trying to help !

Double click your move tool to open up the move tool attributes, then look at the discreet move to see if it's checked or not. If the move tool attributes are open and you press the letter J or maybe Shift J, then it can turn it on.

see picture to see what I mean.

I just tried it out. If you press shift first and then J...but really fast, it can turn on the discreet move tool, which acts like snapping. It can do it with the move tool and the scale too. so you might want to check both. Hope this helps.

I am so sorry to reply to this old thread but..

I found another way to turn off the annoying auto snapping tool.. So yeah look at this image below:


Well when I done my work half way through, the auto snapping tool begins to on for no reason.. and it gave me headache after the tool starts to on again and again in my later works. So yeah I disabled it by simply pressing the "Snap to Grid' icon. After turning it off, have fun continuing your work.
