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.
My boss figured out a way around this problem.
If you go to Workspace > Button Assignments and click the "XButton 1" and type in: 'reset;choose element' press enter, and then go to "remap buttons" and change "Xbutton 1" to be invoked by the "Right Button". then it works!
Thanks for posting this!! Pulling what little hair I have left out!!!
so just setting it in the remap right mb and the keyin string you used didn't work first time round without the x1 button?
