# How to set a different snapping option for Translation and Scale

I need vertex snapping:

closest, scale
active, move


I really struggle to enable the closest and active options, they either turn on while closest or active... I dont know how to turn those separately on, i tried python script, but it end up truning scaling and moving in active mode, not scaling in closest mode. Please help me, i really need this to save my life. This is what didnt work for me:

import bpy

bpy.context.scene.tool_settings.snap_target = 'CLOSEST'
bpy.context.scene.tool_settings.use_snap_scale = True
bpy.context.scene.tool_settings.snap_target = 'ACTIVE'
bpy.context.scene.tool_settings.use_snap_translate = True


Thank you very much.

• Hello, I don't think you can have different snap target for translation and scale at the same time – Gorgious Apr 19 at 21:46
