Someday when I have enough money, I'm going to buy out Autodesk for the sole purpose of permanently removing the PICKFIRST variable ..... AutoCAD users around the world will love me. :lol:

I am using AutoCAD 2010.

Recently there are commands that I have used in the past but now are not able to attain through mouse clicking.

I used to be able to right click on a viewport and a dialogue box would come up which had a feature allowing me to unlock that particular viewport. Now all I get is a standard dialogue box with copy,cut and paste,etc. I tried to go to the help section and find a command I could type in for unlocking the viewports and was not successful in finding that info! I need this info today (June 18, 2012)!

Also, I used to be able to click on an object and it would "list" its attributes without typing in the command "list". Another is I used to be able to double click text to edit...now I have to go to the text editor icon.

 

 

Thank you!

 

For the text and object question I would go with PICKFIRST not set to 1. (Already mentioned above.)

 

For the viewport locking, you are selecting it first with a left mouse click, and then a right mouse click I hope.

 

Otherwise you may have an object over the top of the viewport, this happens especially if the viewport is not a standard rectangle.

 

You can always use MVIEW command, Lock, On, All (or select one at a time)

Viewport locking is also a toggle on the Status Bar, just to the left of the Scale list.
