Selection Key odd behavior

Recommended Posts

Aloha, anyone have any idea why my selection tool constantly behave as if I have the option key (PC=Alt) pressed? Everything I click and drag are being duplicated. I must have accidentally enabled a key or something.

Tried different keyboards, different mouse and worked on different files, still no change, VW acts in the same was?as if Option Key is pressed.

Option key behave as aspected in all other applications.

Thanks!

Try restarting your Mac. I have seen a similar problem where VW acts like the Command Key is pressed all the time and all you see in the menus and dialog boxes is the shortcuts not the names.

I think it is a bug in OS 10.6 and an interaction with VW, but I have not been able to come up with a repeatable case to buglist.

Hello,

I have the same issue on 2 mac's (MacPro en Imac) the 1st at home and 2nd at work. Not connected except with MobileMe.

Restarting my mac solved the problem for about 5 minutes.

It seems that it occurs especially when Vectorworks and Cinema 4D are used together.

Hope anyone can help.

(It seems that it occurs especially when Vectorworks and Cinema 4D are used together.)

If that is the case would unticking the prefs (Allow option-click in-place duplication) help

Maybe it did. I restored all VW prefs to standard, repaired permissions en rebooted my computer. Now everything seems to be okay.

Lets hope it stays like this when i put my prefs (one by one) back the way I want them.

Thanx

Update.

I think this was a bug in Mac OSX 10.6.6 (and maybe 10.6.5). Since I upgraded to 10.6.7 I have not had a recurrence of this problem.
