We just upgraded our systems to Windows 7 and V8i SS3 from XP and V8i SS2.
We are using ProjectWise. All hardware is just simple out-of-the box Dell keyboard & mouse.
Only software was updated. Hardware has not changed.
In the old XP/SS2 environment, a right click would return me to the selection tool. This no longer works. It doesn't seem to do anything. The current command/tool remains active.
I searched online, found some info about changing some options in the Look & Feel part of preferences. But, none of the changes caused anything to change.
How can I change the right cilck behavior in Microstation V8i SS3 to escape/cancel current command and return to my default tool which is the Selection tool?
P.S. I do have ESC set up to cancel commands, but I am looking for my mouse to act the same way in SS3 as it did in SS2.
EDIT: I am still using XP/SS2 on top of my Win7/SS3 via a VDI login and the buttons work as expected, so it is not a mouse hardware problem.
workspace > button assignments> remap buttons ( choose the reset button option right mouse for me)
enter this keyin
The "choose element " works on its own but I thought it wise to include the reset as some tools require a reset to finish and accept like create complex and create shapes etc...
I even put the place fence by element and print to pdf A3 with a series of action strings set to my side mouse button next to thumb X1
Saves a lot of time for quick prints with all my defaults, pentable etc...so all I do is thumb and data point on any boundary ie sheet edge or titleblock...

I tried this. My button was already mapped correctly, but I did do it anyway. I also did the key-in. Nothing changed. Did Bentley do something with Win7 and SS3 that took this function away? It is so very annoying when something like this happens.
Regarding button assignment, if you want a machine to work the way another do, you can save the button assignment from first machine in a file and open it on the other machine, this doesn't save the button mapping that depend on hardware.
On your old machine,
Then on the new machine,
