Mouse wheel click snap menu?

When zooming, I middle click the mouse to bring up osnaps, then type the letter to force the snap I want.  That stopped working today: the menu pops up, I type "E", the menu goes away, but it doesn't default to endpoint, there's an "E" on my command line.  Any ideas?

 

I'm not sure if this is a Service Pack 1 issue or not, but I just installed that yesterday.

 

Thanks!

Did you change the mouse driver setting for the middle button?

or edit the mouse button setting in CUI command?

This post has someone with the same issues as us: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-2013/SP-1-Is-Available/td-p/3590872

 

For me, it is when I shift+ right click and hit a hot key.  Funny thing is it only works the first time, every other time it just redirects the key into the command line after closing the menu.  Excel menu hot keys still work fine so it's not a system issue.  I did toggle underlining hot keys in the control panel, and verified the & key is still present in the CUI also.

I haven't done either of those that I can think of.  Is there a setting you can think of offhand that I could modify in the CUI?

Thanks, I did a search, but I couldn't find anything.  Good to know it's not just me.  I knew I shouldn't have applied the SP taht fast, I usually wait a month or two.  That'll teach me!

So it broke only after SP1 was installed?

Yes, that's when I noticed it.  Check the link above that Robert provided, other people are having it, too.

Well, they have withdrawn it so maybe they will fix it again. You're looking at a removal and reinstall of 2013 for now.

Looks like the latest SP1.1 for x64 win7 has fixed this issue; although, I did not notice it mentioned within the readme.

I haven't tried SP1.1 yet (I figured I'd give them a few days to see if they tell us it has fatal flaws first), but I was one of those who installed SP1 when it came out and it did in fact screw up the o-snap shortcuts just as you mentioned. Uninstall SP1 through control panel and it will start working correctly again.
