Bug: Toggle Named CPlane Panel stops mouse pointer (cursor) to refresh properly


#1

Version 5 SR5 (5.5.30717.16015, 17.7.2013)
Windows XP Pro 32 SR3
When i click Named CPlane command which runs this

_-NamedCPlane _Visible _Visible=_Toggle _Enter _Enter

…my mouse cursor stops to refresh properly - it shows the same symbol until next function (or hover) is used* and makes it change. Only fix I am aware of now is to restart Rhino.

* When I use RMB to move the viewport the hand appears and remains “hand” after RMB is released, until I use different tool i.e. Cancel → then it switches to Arrow, etc.

In the Set View tab, Camera icon with tooltip: Toggle named views panel, the Command macro I have is a little different:
_-NamedView _TabVisibility _TabVisible=_Toggle _Enter _Enter

I’m not seeing the cursor problems you described. I tested it in 32-bit WinXP SR3

I suspect you might be running an old menu RUI file from a much earlier build, maybe even a beta.
There;'s no good way currently to get an updated menu RUI file unless you uninstall Rhino, download the big 1gb installer, then run ToolbarReset. This will destroy your menu customizations.

I guess before going to that effort, I’d try replacing the macro with mine and see if that works better for you.

Thanks for stopping by John,
even for me it seems impossible to replicate the issue now, which is weird because it has happened several times in a row (that actually made me post it here).
I’ll try to change the macro and see if the issue will ever appear again. In such case I will get back here to add some update.
Thanks again,
David
