Can AutoCAD ignore snap-funcions for certain layers?

i want to see a certain layer, but osnap should ignore the elements of this layer, while drawing in another layer.

thanks Karin

Alas, no, but it would certainly be useful. As of version 2008, you can tell AutoCAD to ignore osnaps in hatch objects, but that's it.

I deal with this by leaving osnaps turned off, setting MBUTTONPAN = 0, and using the middle mouse wheel (or button) to bring up the osnap menu once I get right on the object I want, instead of having osnaps highlight every endpoint, midpoint, etc., that the cursor passes over.

Middle button-E for endpoint, middle-button-I for intersection, etc.

No. Another thing they should have developed over the years instead of monkeying with button graphics, IMHO. Other cad packages have numerous show/snap options.
