Cursor/scrollwheel behaviour haywire

Post by Hoosterw »

After toolpath previewing the cursor in the 3D view map is going haywire or at least the 3D object skirts and swipes around when pointing and clicking and its hard to get the behavior as before. I have to go out of the model and re open and the behavior is normal.

Any way to keep this from happening?

If you have a wireless mouse be sure the receiving unit is within 3 to 5 feet of the mouse. Also, if you have an optical mouse try cleaning the lens. Worked for me. Maybe not for you.

Thanks, but its a Wacom tablet mouse. So unlikely it will be the problem.

As said it happens when I have had a preview of the toolpath. when I want to click and drag the model in 3D view it changes its orientation upon the click.

Just thought to give it a bump.

Check in the Options under the Edit menu to see if you have "Use graphics tablet" set to Yes. If so try setting it to No and restarting.

The drivers were up to date, thanks.

But apparently the setting use graphical tablet was set to YES, setting to NO did it for now.

Thanks Adrian.
