  4. Note that you can also change snap options while a command is active.
  5. Move the cursor over a face or edge.
  6. The face or edge is highlighted.
  7. If a nearest point is found the point is marked.
  8. Optionally move the cursor along the face or edge to select a different nearest point.

Notes

  • It is not a good idea to have Draft Snap Near permanently active as it takes precedence over many other snap options.
