Unable to save change to right click customization

When I change the User Preferences "right click customization" to "Repeat Last Command" and "ENTER" then hit "Apply & Close" it reverts back to the default settings.

Do any other settings in OPTIONS not stick either? Most likely I suspect, unless it resets when you restart AutoCAD or open a new drawing. Post back.

 

Consider turning on TIME SENSITIVE RIGHT-CLICK, adjust the millisecond time setting if needed, and avoid losing about have the program's ability by not having access to features.

Hi,

 

>> I have this problem and am searching for an answer.

you could then start with answering the question pendean asked:

  • Do any other settings in OPTIONS not stick either?

If also other options are not saved that might be a problem saving the settings to the registry. Either a technical problem or a security settings avoiding it.

Everything else works fine.  In fact, I can actually save any two of the three right click customization options below the time sensitive option.  I cannot enable all three at once.  As soon as I do that, Autocad unchecks the box to allow right click customization.

Repair does nothing.  Still can't enable all three options that I want.  I attached a picture showing what I would like to do.

The "all three" you want is the same as unchecking the SHORTCUT MENUS IN DRAWING AREA on the main pop-up before the one you posted. Seems to stick here just fine.

 

SHORTCUTMENU variable set to 0 (zero) does the same: if this changes, you have an add-on or startup that is doing it for you. 2013 works fine otherwise.

I have the box unchecked, because I wanted "all three" and when I type "L" and press right click, nothing happens.  However if I type "L" and then press "Enter" I am able to draw a line.  These two methods are not identical.  What I want the right click to do is simulate pressing "Enter" in this mode like it did in Autocad 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012.  I am not sure if the function was inconsistent in the other releases as these are the only ones I have used.

As Dean suggested, this could very well have something to do with an add-on.  I recently had a case with a user who had Thermal Desktop in use with AutoCAD Mechanical 2012, and the time-sensitive setting kept getting switched off.  We tested it out and it only appeared to uncheck when he opened a drawing file that contained Thermal Desktop objects.  When opening plain AutoCAD drawings, the setting seemed to hold.

 

Do you happen to be using any 3rd-party add-on software, such as Thermal Desktop?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I have zero add-ons.
