Reset (right click) not returning to default command (selection tool)

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?

Thanks.

 

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

    reset;choose element

    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...

    BTW

    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...
