Snap to grid question

Hi. I’ve been searching and I can’t find what I’m looking for.

I’d like to snap a vertex to the grid in only 1 direction. ie Snap to the nearest grid line along the x axis or y axis.

Doe someone know the magic key?

Thanks much!!

Good question, I’m not aware of such a key combination (though there probably is one). In the meantime you can try this work-around:
Press N-key.
You can then manually enter the position of the vertex (in edit-mode).


After you hit G hold Ctrl and watch your coordinates in the bottom left of the 3D window.


Pressing Ctrl while using the transformation widgets or while in grab mode (after pressing the g key) will snap movement to the grid.

Also try,
to limit grap mode to x,y or z

Note, Ctrl will also work once restricted to a single axis
