Osnap Activation

This is an old tip, but I've realized a lot of people don't know about it; if you right-click on any Osnap it will be selected while all others will be deselected, if they were selected in the first place.

And on the same order of ideas, if you wish to toggle between enabling or disabling active Osnaps, you can add this macro to an Alias (menu: Tools > Options > Aliases):

_DisableOsnap Toggle

Enjoy!

_DisableOsnap _Toggle does not seem to work as an alias in the current version (Rhino5). I would love to be able to set an alias to toggle my osnaps, but have yet to figure out how.

Take out the _ between DisableOsnap and Toggle and it will work. The added space will be treated as an Enter which is needed to get to the Toggle option.

_DisableOsnap Toggle

You can also hold down Alt to toggle the Osnap state interactively.

On SetSnap I hit toggle, but it isn't working. P.S. I'm on Mac. How do I make this work?

On Rhino for Mac the right click tip works differently due to OSX. If you Hold Alt/Option and left click an Osnap that will be the only one selected. Making a toggle alias in Rhino's preferences works though in Rhino 5 for Mac you just have to remove the underscore before toggle. I'll edit the original post too to make this more obvious.
