Lost quick tool selection

Post by Mikerosen »

I seem to have lost my keyboard tool selection (l=line, m=parallel, mm=cutting tool, etc.)

Did I turn them off by mistake, somehow? I'm using 5.11 on Big Sur 11.6.

Merci.

Bonjour Mike,

It is not possible to turn this off.

Which version of RealCADD to you use?

Cordialement.

Mike, I don't have this problem.
Did you tried some times, aie-th relaunching RealCADD, macOS?
Does this occur each time, some times?

Go figure. This morning, it's working again.

Sorry for the false alarm.

The shortcut keys have stopped working, again. I'm still using 5.11 on Big Sur. I have restarted both the app and the computer, multiple times. I tried going to the link for the 5.2 beta, but I got a 404.

EDIT: I just went back to a new drawing. The shortcut keys didn't work, as I said. But then, I let the palette expand, and close again. The shortcuts worked. So, I don't know what's causing it, but if this continues to work as a temporary fix, I'm good with it.

Further checks: It's definitely related to changing tools. After I use a tool, the shortcuts are frozen until I expand/close the tool palette. Just mousing up to it does the trick; then I can use the keyboard to select the tool I want. But that double action sort of destroys the purpose of the shortcuts, no?

Bonjour Mike,

Yes this solution is not good.

Can you take a screen shoot when you use RealCADD to show me how you have configured it, please?

Cordialement.

Eric,

I'm sorry, I must have missed this. I am now using 5.20 on Monterey 12.3.1, and still have the problem. I have to mouse over the tools palette, allowing it to fly out and return, before I can use the keyboard to switch tools. However, once I've used the arrow tool, I lose the keyboard selection, again.

What would you like a screen shot of?
