Me again. Please hotfix the select tool & 3d constraint issue asap (see my previous post). This is getting old, fast. I am making extra workplanes so I just constrain stuff. Should have waited for sp1.
Just installed 2012 and am still getting used to the new select tool. When 3d constraining and selecting the second constraint I get a confirmation tone but the 'ok' or 'apply' buttons are not available. If possible I can orbit around and pick the same feature, not requiring the select tool, and the constraint works. This is a fresh install on a rebuilt hard drive.
If I am not the only one, hope that this gets fixed. Very time consuming.

I have the same annoying problem. even more: if i use amber icon color theme instead of cobalt icon color theme (which is the default inventor theme) the select other tool doesn't appear at all.
I hope that this will be fixed asap

You are not the only one having trouble selecting the second (or third) select-set using select other
try constraining cylinders, downloaded from Festo. The inner cylinder surface plane is impossible to constrain
hope this will be fixed soon!

Select other tool is a pain, but mine issue also includes that even if I scroll or pull down and select the "other" object, even though it highlights, it may not select the other object. I find myself needing to sometimes change the view slightly (orbit or similar) and starting the select other over again. Like Inventor knows its there, but the database is not refreshed for the select other. weird.
A while ago I posted some "Autodesk Mottos" that I can't find now but
1 was "2 mouse clicks must be better than 1"
and "If it ain't broke, lets change it"
You hit the mark on this!

I have posted on this as well, Autodesk says there is a fix in the works...I keep checking each day.

Any update hotfixes yet?
The thing is riddled with other problems aside from the obvious, for example you can't constrain one part to another if the second part is a 'select other' face. It selects the face, and a part preview is shown, but the 'apply' button is unavailable so you have to cancel it which undoes the constarint.
