Default Two Snapping Questions

I have two questions about snapping to ask you guys. Firstly, for some reason, whenever I now use snap to grid, it will snap the vertexes to the grid, but it won't bring them in line with each other, causing a problem whenever I want to duplicate or merge, or even when I just want to bring the vertexes into a straight line. Secondly, I was wondering what the hotkey is for "snap to edge?"

Thanks in advance

to line up verts again u use the scale tool and the hotkey for snap to grid is 'x' hold in when using the move toll and it will snap to grid

hope this helps

Yea, I know the shortcut for snap to grid, and I know how to straighten vertexes with the scale tool, but I prefer using snap to grid, as it makes them completely and absolutely straight. However, this isn't working right now.

"c" is snap to curve( which will also work on a polygon edge) and you must use the middle mouse button when you click. Snap to point is "v" and will also snap a vert right ontop of another vert.

in the move tool options, turn off "retain component spacing"
