Esc key and Object Info Palette

Recommended Posts

In previous versions of VW, pressing the key while in the object info palette would move focus back to the main drawing window, allowing another keyboard shortcut to activate a tool. This doesn't seem to work anymore in 2013 - am I missing a setting?

I keep entering "x" in fields everywhere as I try to activate the selection tool after editing some information.

Hmm, should have said:

VW 2013 SP2 (Build 177995)

Mac OS 10.8.3

Macbook Pro 15" Core i7

8gb RAM

Does that narrow it down at all?

Is there a preference I'm missing? Been driving me nuts for almost 6 months now!

On my MacBook Pro the Caps Lock key requires a harder key stroke to activate than other keys. And it has to be straight down - a sideways stroke seems to fail most of the time. Also, the "`" key sticks sometimes when I temporarily disable the snaps. This inadvertently locks out all the snaps and grays out the snap palette until I strike the key a few more times to release it. Could your escape key or the way you hit it be part of the problem?
