PETITION: Add CANCEL or ESC Command

It's 2012. It's HIGH TIME, Autodesk!! Stop giving us the runaround, feature request form links, the stonewalling. Stop giving us new buttons for the same old features. Listen to your users and stop putting up barricades.

 

Give us a CANCEL COMMAND or ESCAPE key functionality. A vast host of experienced Inventor users and gurus have begged, pleaded, cajoled for lo these many years. Enough is enough.

 

If you are a user and agree, please reply that you agree.

 

Autodesk, in case you haven't been reading these forums, here's a short list of threads throughout the years. The requesters reads like a who's who of Inventor users, mentors, and distinguished contributors. FOR 10 YEARS now:

Sean Dotson and Peer Hoffmann agreed in 2004 that a Cancel Command is needed.

 

It was requested 9 releases ago: http://tinyurl.com/6s8zgvf

 

I see also that Donovan Cox also agrees on the tail of the previous thread: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Inventor/I-want-a-Cancel-Button/td-p/554799

I agree with the addition of a Cancel or Esc command as well. I also know that we have for years and with every release of IV complained about speed first.

 

I can see this adding time, all be it a small amount to the process of each command, as it would require pausing each command process to scan the keyboard during each command, to check that a keyboard command has been issued to interrupt/cancel the operation.

I have no need for a cancel/esc command..

On the rare..rare occassion I might need it I would just use task manager and kill Inventor..

 

 

<sarcasm>What I would like is that Autodesk just continue moving/redoing the buttons/UI each and every year to keep me from getting bored... </sarcasm>

Funny enough - that's the only wish which is granted unconditionally! Without any sarcasm! LOL!

Teun Ham, Brian Cranston, Johnson Shiue of Autodesk, JDMather, and WDannels all agreed 6 years ago, in 2006
