I typically use the function keys to toggle osnap, polar, orthomode etc. on & off. Now what happens is that when I use any function key it changes the setting for the previous F-key press. It does this once, then reverts to normal behaviour. For example:
F3 Osnap On
F3 Osnap Off
F3 Osnap On
F10 Osnap Off
F10 Polar On
F10 Polar Off
F8 Polar On
F8 Ortho On
Is anyone else seeing this, or am I the only one?
never heard (again) and sorry, I can't help as I have no solution for this.
But I have >>>this thread<<< and you (and sue) should compare all of your settings, beginning from hardware to operating-system to AutoCAD-settings as you have the same problem.
Let us know if there is a solution on that!
Good luck, - alfred -
When I had this problem:
I found that it was related to a floating commandline. Re-docking stopped it.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
I am having the exact same issue. And my command line is docked. When I use two function keys in a row the second function key picks the first. i am using logitech keyboard and mouse with set point.
This bug is DRIVING ME CRAZY!! I upgraded my CAD department from 2000 to 2014 and this function bug is really starting to get annoying. Sometimes we can go a week without the bug then other times it happens every other drawing and we keep having to "X" out and reopen. We each work with dozens of drawings daily and this has become a nuisance..
I emailed Autodesk and am in touch with a MR. Daniel who said they are working on it but are having trouble recreating the bug. I have assessed my codes, all my function keys are assigned properly, and the function keys work properly in any other program. I maximize my design space so I have no command line, have been drafting that way forever. I just dont need it. However, I have other CAD guys that have floating, and docked command lines and it is giving all 4 of our stations trouble.
At first, I thought I was the only one and was getting suggestions that my coding was conflicting. Now that more and more threads are coming out and people are experiencing the same issue, it has becoma a CAD-ademic!
I am using Dell wireless mouse with Microsoft Opitcal Mouse. Other CAD guys are using some wired and some wireless. We are are experiencing this bug. So that cannot be the case.
ANY HELP! ANYTHING!! IM HERE!! THANKS!
I am having the same issues. However, it does not seem to be a bug, it seems more like a they changed the toggle operation, although I cannot figure out why.
The first toggle you hit, lets call it ortho, always toggles the previous toggle you activated or deactivated, lets say osnap. Subsequent toggles of ortho will then toggle ortho.
So if I just turned ortho off, and there are no toggles activated, the next toggle, no matter which one, lets say osnap, will reactivate ortho, and subsequent activations of that toggle, osnap, will toggle osnap.
I cannot see the advantage of this, it forces me to toggle about 2x as much.
