Match Properties Glitch

I seem to have found a glitch in AutoCAD 2010. Everything will be working fine, then while using the match properties command a paint brush appears next to my cursor, as it should. However, the paint brush does not go away after I'm done using match properties. It doesn't seem to interfere with anything, I can still conduct all other commands and even open other drawings, but the paint brush never goes away. Does anyone know what is wrong and how to fix it? It is really starting to get annoying. Edited by: fred.merlo@sbcglobal.net on Apr 3, 2009 9:24 PM

That looks like a minor bug.

It's possible it could be your graphics card. That happens to my students on the classroom's older Dell computers. The card can't handle AutoCAD and will leave lines "floating" that can't be removed without restarting AutoCAD.

I have also had this problem, i found that by choosing the match properties button and then entering out of the command that the paint brush will go away. this has seemed to work for me. Edited by: dtg1 on May 8, 2009 11:05 AM

We've had this problem since ACAD2008. We found it when we used the hatch command and used the comand to find the hatch limits.. when we finished the hatch, the paintbrush would stay with us. We fixed this by hatching another shape the same way, then erasing the hatch... then we'd get our proper cursor back. This is obviously an Autocad glitch... meybe they could fix it?... hope so.. it's annoying.

I have had the same problem, and a colleague has found it happening too. I tried what user named "dtg1" suggested, using the match tool again, and entering through the commands. Sure enough this got the normal cursor back.
Does anyone know if this has been fixed yet?

Just to add... Last week a student had this happen to her cursor. We're running fresh installs of Windows 7 and vanilla AutoCAD 2010.
