forgot to add .blend file earlier.

Thanks for the report, fixed in master, note that since 2.69 - a related bug (T39161) was fixed too, so worth using recent builds -

We may back-port this for 2.76a.

Thankyou very much. I've also updated the SO thread to mention the fix.

Snap tool still broken. No difference in daily builds

@nullpoint, checked again with master and its working here.
perhaps @Roy Mathew (roym) can confirm if the fix is working.

The fix is working for me.

@nullpoint - I looked at your .blend file attached to the thread at . It's a large file and it's not clear what isn't working - can you reduce the problem to a small file with 2 objects.

2.75 working

2.76 broken

Daily build still broken.

Thank you the care about.

i realized this problem to (with 2.76),
but only if scaling around >3d-cursor< (and cursor is exactly on vertex-point),

if scaling around origin, problem did not occurs

Im scaling around origins, as you can see on gif attachments.

(actually thats a median point because i try everything, but im work with origins mode, and every mode working in 2.75)

Do you need any information from my workmachine and operating system or etc, for easier problem identification?

mhm, may its a bug ;) ... i only read this thread and tryed to reproduce ...
same behaivor here with 2.76
( reduced sample from stackexchange here:


@Sylvio Sell (semmi) - you're right. I tried it with Campbell's fix: this .blend demonstrates that there still is a snap problem.

I'm so excited :D : D A trying every daily build . I will shout if all right :)

Committed fix for snap_problem-1-reduced.blend rB62225057394b61c66cb7cb2ce1e9b8c62170c0d8.

Set axis alignment to Z while snapping and this works as expected.

@Sylvio Sell (semmi), best just report a new bug, if you notice a fix for one bug doesn't resolve an error in a related area.

blender-2.76-6222505-win64 daily build seems working Z and Y axis, there is a strange thing on X axis. See gif upper right corner , if snapping X axis.


Its will be good very soon. I feel it :)

Good news!
Latest build working awesome properly!!!  

This team the best! 

( i cant be able to use blender git currently, so i cant did the code change, what Campbell linked. :)  ( but i will learn)   )
