I want to snap between two poly-lines from 2 different layers (Layer1 in Brown and Layer 2(postGIS layer) in Pink color- ), but my snap option don't work. I have changed the tolerance to different levels but still not getting the results.

enter image description here

I don't get the magenta + sign to appear near vertices for snapping as many say it online.

  1. Which tool used for snapping? I know only the "Node tool" which is not working .

  2. I have set both layers editable (toggle editing set: ON)

  3. Is there any better plugins there(I have tried many available ones.)?

Please give me suggestions since I am a beginner in QGIS.

    I always use pixel as snapping units. If map units are degree, you will rarely get snapping with 6 map units.
