Right click not working in CS6...

Apr 10, 2013 4:17 AM

I can't right click objects on the artboard in Illustrator CS6.

For example if I want to break the link to an object I can't.

I use a Wacom tablet and suspected that there is a problem with the pen.

But the same thing happens if I use the trackpad on my MacBook.


Has anyone one else experienced this?

If so how did you fix it short of a reinstall?

    And you've verified your right mouse button is active, in preferences? It's working in other programs?

    You may try some of these (you have probably been through 1) and 2) already), especially 4) and 5) (especially Item 7):


    1) Close down Illy and open again;

    2) Restart the computer;

    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (irreversible);

    4) Move the folder with Illy closed (reversible);

    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options;


    Even more seriously, you may:


    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool, and reinstall.
