Right mouse button screwed after new menu inserted

45 Views, 12 Replies

Hi all. After I creaetd a new menu (For inserting blocks, I used a slide
library and did it that way) my right mouse button is totally screwed.

It adds extra characters to commands on the command line instead of being
enter like usual. I can't shift-right click for osnaps, or anything.

And if this is a setting in AutoCAD I'm going to scream because that is
about the most useless setting I could ever think of. Would you like to use
your right mouse button? Gee, no thanks, I'll just use the keyboard!

Acad version LT97

Sincerely,

Sounds like your menu . You *are* making custom menus in a separate menu
file, right? Check the AUX menu section against a known good copy.

What happens when you unload this menu. Are the comments in your file
correct (they word-wrapped on the post)? Why the empty ***TOOLBARS?

I unloaded everything, so all I had was a File menu...it still does it.

What happens is the right mouse does whatever the last key on the keyboard
was pressed. So If I type in line, and right click, it adds an e. If I hit
enter, then right click, it enters.

Weird. Could it be your mouse driver?

Tried that. I've tried everything short of re-installing acad. Which I
can't do, and the tech guy that works here is gone for the next week.

I tell you, this is really slowing me down!

Wierd! Don't mean to interrupt. Robert has asked the right questions.
I understand that you
a. have used menuload to load your menu and subsequently
unloaded all menus.
b. did not use menu command to load the menu in the first place.
c. haven't changed the
1. right click customization in the options command.
2. mouse settings in the operating system driver.
d. don't have any autoloading lisp files that affect the mouse settings.
e. are sure that the version of the menu that you attached is the one
being loaded and not another one with the same name in
a directory earlier in the search path.

If above is true, suggest you delete the acad.mns, acad.mnc, and use
menu command to reload acad.mnu. Check your mouse then. If works,
then load your menu with menuload. Delete empty toobars section.

I can't get the disc. I am not allowed to touch it. It's not easy being
the low man on the totem pole.

I'll try reloading the mnu file and see what happens.
