Cannot use temporary/oneshot object snaps (solved)

Hello, noob question here.

When I try to use oneshot osnaps by holding shift or altgr and hovering over the osnap bar the buttons turn grey. When I try to click one of them nothing happens and the oneshop osnap does not trigger. The same thing happens when holding ctrl to use refrence osnaps such as along parallel.

Thanks in advance.

Hello- the one shots only activate if Rhino is inside a command when a n xyz location is needed.

Thank you for the quick reply!
