(1.9) Editor: Center mouse button & keypad problem

Postby Gazeboman » 16 May 2011 18:26

I think this may be a bug in the editor.
For some reason the center mouse button and keypad combinations used to duplicate objects has stopped working.
This originally happened while creating levels in an earlier version of SMC inLinux Mint but now has also happened on my other computer running Windows 7 Professional. So I'm thinking it could very well be a bug. I've tried re-installing on both machines but to no avail. Any ideas?

Is there anything that those two computers have in common? Has SMC been installed for the same amount of time? Do they share any components (i.e. do you have a USB extension that you use on both such as an external keypad)? Does re-installation change anything?

I thought this had stopped working at one point to, but it was actually my mouse. Does your center button work? Try it in another program to see if it's SMC. (eg: Most Internet browsers you can open links in new tabs by clicking on it with the center scroll button.

Thanks for the quick replies.

I also wondered if the mouse could have been the culprit and so this evening I swapped out the Logitech USB mouse with another one from a completely different system. Problem solved. Wooooooooohoooo!!!
It wasn't the SMC editor at all. No bug. Great program. Now I guess I'll have to take the problem up with Logitech. Wish me luck.
Thanks again for diving in and helping out.
