    Default keyboard shortcuts not working

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi I am using Autocad for Mac and all of a sudden my keyboard shortcuts are no longer working. For instance, when i press "delete", nothing happens. Or when I try to edit the text by double clicking, nothing happens. This happened all of a sudden, so I think I must have pressed something by accident. Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Type PICKFIRST and set the variable to 1.

    Some (poorly written) lisp routines will change it and not change it back at the end of the routine.

    Although to my knowledge I don't use any lisp routines which modify it yet it still happens occasionally to me, so I am not entirely sure.

    Express tools are a collection of LISPs, I think certain ones may reset some variables.

    Good point, I had forgotten that and do use some of these occasionally.
