I know there's probably a thread about this or it's somewhere in one of the pinned posts, sorry but I'm a moron.

So, the problem is I cannot build with the grid anymore. No matter if it's size of 64 or 128 or 16, it's always acting like I'm using 1, and this is pretty annoying when you're trying to do long roads.

I think there's a shortcut to turn it off and on, how can I make the block tool (and everything...) use the grid I want, instead of never ending 1 Hammer Unit Size?

If it's the same, I've gotten it yesterday and could find a fix, so restarting Hammer got it all back. As @Viperi said, it could be Shift+W, as I remember messing with these keys before getting it.

Nah it's stored in the VMF so if you save it after disabling snapping and don't know the shortcut, you're screwed. So was I the first time, and yes I had to look and edit the VMF.
