Failure to Snap on a Shapefile with a Join

Having an odd issue with the snapping feature in editor.  I have a shapefile that has a join performed on it so I can see additional information.  I am trying to snap to this point shapefile with a separate polyline shapefile.....however snapping does not recognize it.  It will recognize all the other shapefiles I have present.  Once I remove the join from the shapefile the snapping magically works again.  Has any one else experienced this? Thanks.

You need to state which version of Arcmap you are using and any service packs.

I use ArcGIS 10.2.1 and I have the same problem.  I'm using SDE datasets.  Also, I have troubles with the "select by feature" function when I have joint table.

10.2.1 Shapefiles are unable to be spatially modified

here is something I asked about not too long ago.  It may or may not have something to do with your issue.  It's logged, but not fixed as far as I know.  But if you are using Mapping and Charting, then that may be your issue.

This has been identified as a bug (NIM095455: In an edit session, snapping stops working on a layer if a join exists on that layer.) and has been fixed in 10.2.2
