Default make live does not snap

I'm using maya 8 to model. I have a char ready to have its eyes shaped using a live nurbs sphere but when i use make live on the nurbs sphere nothing snaps to the thing. It turns wire and changes colour but nothing I do seems to get points to snap. ... Help The book I'm reading says it should just snap not snap toggle or anything. Is there a way around this?


***edit***
Reset your transformation tool if this happens to you. for example the move tool.

Hi wokendreams,

If you're trying to snap to a live Nubs Sphere then I believe you need to hold down "x" while you drag with the mmb. Just make sure you have the transform tool selected and not the scale or rotate. Also, it is normal for a live object to turn into wireframe.
