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.
