I have a HP laptop on which I run AutoCAD 2012 AND Civil3D 2012 both of which for some reason do not have the function keys working as normal. Oddly enough if I attach an external keyboard, the function keys work as expected.
Has anyone else had this issue and how to resolve?
Do they work in other programs?
In any other program, does F1 bring up help, or does Alt + F4 close the program etc.?
If it is just an acad problem I can't think of where to look, but if it is everything then have a look at regional and keyboard settings in the control panel, and look at the specific laptop keyboard settings. It's possible the regular functions are being overridden by web, media player, calculator etc. options that can be on the keyboard,
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
Thank you for your reply.
I suspect the laptop assigns the functionality of the keys as the issue occurs with other software applications. I will drop HP an email and learn whether the presets may be overridden.
