Certain shortcut keys not working


Ive recently moved to v2.40 and am loving it, but for some reason certain shortcut keys have stopped working.

For example, if i press Alt+B for the edge loop selection tool, blender just activates the box select as if i have just pressed B. Its as though blender is ignoring the alt key or something.

Has anyone heard of anything like this happening before? Ive tried searching around, but cant find any mention of similar problems.

Its really quite frustrating as I dont know any other way of getting to the loop select tool…

Its documented in the release notes. The new command is alt-rmb which acts differently if you are in edge, vertex or face mode.


Ah… thanks dude

I guess I should read that…
