This issue happened somewhat regularly with Rhino v5, and it seems to be happening with v6 as well.
I have Rhino opened up into a full screen on one of my monitors. I have Grasshopper maximized on the other monitor.
If I am in Grasshopper working away, and then click back into the Rhino viewport to do some Rhino command, I’m usually able to type the command in Rhino using the keyboard and the keystrokes show up in the command prompt window. However, I lose the ability of the Return key to work. Basically, I can type the command but cannot execute it. Similarly, I may lose the function of the Delete key on the keyboard, or perhaps the Esc key. I can go back into Grasshopper and keep working but the keyboard still won’t work if I flip back into Rhino.
Occasionally, I may be able to save and close Grasshopper, then go into Rhino (the only window left on either screen) and the keyboard may work. At other times, even closing Grasshopper will not give me back full control of the keyboard in Rhino.
Also having the sme problem of not being able to use delete key. Just spent a small fortune on a laptop to switch to windows from mac to open up the possibilities of GH and somewhat regretting it. Hope this can get sorted. Thanks
I am having the same problem cant delete the GH component and also cant type any value in GH as it goes back to Rhino command section and somehow i am teleported to Rhino world…
Stop being abusive to your lil brother Grasshopper, Rhino this is not good of you !
I run Rhino full screen on my secondary monitor and GH full screen on my primary, and I switch back and forth between them fairly frequently.
I’ve had only 2 problems with this, and one is my fault: both Rhino and GH will respond to the keyboard only if their window has the current focus, and this means I have to click on something when I move the cursor from one screen to the other. What I frequently do is switch my mental focus from one screen to the other (without clicking on something) and then turn my scroll wheel - which of course scrolls or zooms the “wrong” screen.
The other problem is that after Baking something and giving Rhino the focus, the delete key
sometimes does nothing. But using the Rhino menus to delete does work. This seems like a quirk to me, but I’m not really sure why it happens.
Hey Guys! I remembered this was discussed some time ago here at the forum, and If i can remember, the solution was: Set Rhino and GH fullscreen, and the click a couple times at this button over here in the lef of your windows clock (see attachment).
I saw so many posts about this bug throughout the last 8 or so years but without any conclusive fix. This is incredibly frustrating. It’s gone from not leting me CTRL+C/CTRL-V/DEL to not letting me input numbers in the grasshopper pane. Someone’s older post about the num lock working helped for a bit. Restarting worked once. HOW DO I FIX THIS PERMANENTLY?
I’ve had a similar problem regarding keyboard focus between GH and Rhino.
With GH (1.0.0007) maximized on one screen and Rhino (7.7.21160.5001) maximized on the other, when I try to set a value in a GH number slider, the keyboard is simultaneously active in the Rhino console.
No solution found apart from restarting both.
Mahmoud, Rhino.Inside.Revit hang ups are a different issue & we are working on improving these. If you can report workflows where this occurs it will help. They are typically Revit Transaction errors. Thanks.
Report on the Rhino.Inside.Revit section of the forum with Revit Version, Rhino Version, RiR Version and RiR components used (for example Add Direct Shape)
