alt + left mouse button pan

Postby Vincent Popish » Sun Apr 25, 2004 7:33 pm

Hi:

I have noticed that when you real time pan by using the alt key and the left mouse button, that it leaves you in the menu bar at the top of the screen. So if you hit F, E, M, D, V... (ie: the underlined menu items) thinking you are typing an alias, it pulls down that menu. Several of the letters are the same ones I have used for aliases, so it does somethig else with the menu instead of the alias command. Is there some way to get it to stop jumping to the menu items? Or is there some other button besides the alt key to we can use to do a real time pan?

Also, I am still having trouble with the osnap highlights, often they don't work until I go to settings, unselect the buttons and reselect the dynasnap and toolltip buttons.

I have downloaded and installed the newest sp5 dated april 23.

Thanks,
Vince Popish

Tapping the Alt key is the standard method (pre-mouse use) of accessing the Main Menu bar in any Windows environment program. That's why the keyboard input responds to the next key tapped as though you had issued an ALT + "KEY" command. It's not an MSCAD thing; it's a Windows thing.

Quick work around: tap the ALT key again at the end of your "PAN" session. The second click on the ALT key returns the keyboard to normal state.

alt mouse

Hi:

Yes, I know it is a standard windows function, that is why a number of other programs don't use it for panning. The question I have, is it changeable so it works with the control key, or perhaps the shift key or some other easy combination?

Thanks,

Hi Ian and Vince,

Vince is right, the Alt / left mouse button combination is not working correctly. It shouldn't be leaving the menus at the top active waiting for the user to press a letter on the keyboard. The CAD manufacturer knows about this problem and will fix it shortly.

I have also noticed that sometimes the osnap highlight don't appear without going to the settings menu. We're looking into this one as well.
