This combination invokes dialog box with vertices merging options. Sometimes due to some unknown reason I cannot bring that box again, no matter how often do I press ALT+M. Thus, I cannot merge vertices with hotkey no more unless I restart the application.
I use blender for Windows since 2.43 version and that problem as far I remember was in previous versions too. This is not critical issue, but sometimes annoying, especially when this hotkey stops working almost right away after Blender restarts. By the way, other hotkeys work perfectly when this problem occures.
The main problem is that I cannot repeat it. I just don’t know what actions sequence makes this hotkey stop working. I can open this action from menu, but this happens to be slow in times when I need to merge many vertices in a row. I’ve noticed some strange things about that:
- It happens more often when I minimize/maximize blender window and switch somewhere else. But still, it happens when blender window doesn’t lose focus.
- Winamp sometimes goes to tray when I minimize Blender. I cannot explain that behaviour, maybe some kind of weird key combination still on, but I can surely tell, that when Winamp goes to tray, I will never see that hotkey working again in about 70% times.
I’m posting this here with purpose to find someone that has the same problem and maybe to get know a bit more, maybe collect more information for bug report, I dunno. :rolleyes:
