    Someone else posted an issue with Max8 Snaps, though I think it involved edge extrusions...
    I haven't personally had any issues snapping to verts in max8.
    Did you load an old UI setup? I know that loading old UI stuff from max7 causes some really wonky stuff to happen in max8.

    its jsut flakey. it alwasy shows where it will snap to, then doesn't snap.

    I switched back to the default UI then changed it and saved, cos loading a custom 7 one screwed it up

    Works fine for me in Max8, Rick.

    These are my settings:

    That's with 3D Snap on, manipulating an EPoly object's verts with the Move tool in Perspective viewport. Don't have any problems whatsoever, works perfectly smoothly.

    If you're still having problems, PM me a link to the file if you can, I'll check it out and see if the same problem happens on my machine. Might be something to do with the scene/object somehow?

    If you're object has modifiers and you're working on the base level, the snap doesn't work right. A specific example would be working on an editable poly object with a turbosmooth modifier. Snap will only work correctly if you temporarily turn off the turbosmooth modifier.
