    Editing Mtext

    I always used to edit text by double clicking. This has now stoppped working for some reason - is there a system variable that control this? I can still edit text by typing ED and then clicking the text. Thank you

    Hi Judy Kay,

    do you have the double click action inside your cui?

    CUI -> double click action -> mtext -> ^C^C_mtedit

    It's fixed now. I had just got CAD 2011. I was customizing my Tool Bar, with what I use a lot. I had to delete all the Tool Bar and start over. It was OK, after that.
    Thanks...
