[Gambit] Problem right-click
I'm having troubles using Gambit. I would like to create a circle.
I know I have to right click on the "Create a face" button to choose the circle option but it's not working. When I right click on this button, the pointer of my mouse become reversed and I cannot change it and cannot click on anything. Everything is stuck! Then I have to use the Task Manager to close Gambit. Actually if I right-click on any button on Gambit, I'm getting the same problem.

Do you know what could the origin of this problem?

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

Have you solved this problem yet? I have the same problem in Linux. Totally have no clue about it...

RMB problem (gambit)
I found this trick by trial and error:

Press down and hold left mouse button on the menu button,
Now while keeping left button pressed down press down AND hold the right mouse button and you will see the hidden menu,
Keep down both mouse buttons and move the courser on the symbol of the command you need,
Now release both buttons at the same time and its chosen.

Unfortunately, I have not found any way to rescue gambit when it hangs by just right clicking on a menu button so I have to kill the process every time I forget the above procedure! Does anybody have a clue?

I have the same problem. What msani said is the only solution to not having to kill gambit.
