Good morning Kathy,

Check Design->Options->Options, the "Electrical Grid" there must be selected
and the "Range" should not be to smal.
If you select a to smal range (snap range of the cursor) and the pad is to
far from the snap grid, the cursor can not
snap (see) to the pad, because the pad does not aperar inside the cursors
snap range
In Tools->Preferences->Options->"Cursor Type", you can change the aperance
of the cursor it self.

Hope this solves your problem.

Betreff: [PEDA] lost snap


Hi all,
I've just recently been using protel 99, with which I'm not so familiar.
I have a question: I lost the snap cursor in pcb file by accident. I
don't know when and how  I lost it. It just didn't work in these couple
of days. When I select drawing lines and move the cursor to a pad or
sth, it doesn't change to a square-shaped snapping. I'm sure the
Tools->Preferences->Options:  Snap to Center  is checked. So why still
can't I have my snap? Thanks in advance for anybody's help.
Regards,
