Sanp to Curve rarely works?

I have noticed that Snap-to-Curve and Snap-to-CV is inconsistent. Snap-to-Grid always works for me. I have more problems with snapping to curves however.

Has anyone noticed this? Any suggestions to get reliable snapping?

Thanks for any input.

Maya 8.5 is a tad different in snapping than the previous versions I've used.

The big tip here is that you select the object you want to snap to then MMB on the curve you want to snap to and drag a little (with the Snap to Curve hot-key pressed of course ('c').

When snapping to a curves CVs or edit points, you must use NURBS component Display options to make Edit points and CVs visible, at which point the object will obey the snap hot key (v).

Alternatively, if you contextual components to CVs then shift-select the object you want to snap to points with modifier, will work as well.

Basically, Maya will not snap to a point that is not visible as a component. As far as I can figure anyway.
