When I hold down shift + control and then click, it acts as if I'm simply right-clicking. This is making it hard to do assignments for my Graphic Layout class.
Some information (if more is needed, I'd be glad to provide it):
-I'm running the latest version of CS 5.5 for InDesign (7.5.2).
-I have nothing running besides InDesign (no browsers, nothing at all).
-I'm doing this on my laptop (MacBook Pro). I have Parallels (virtual machine software) running Windows 7 and I have InDesign on the Windows side.
-Both my Mac and Windows are completely up to date.
Any ideas on how I can fix this problem?
Perhaps something in your mouse settings that makes the right click happen while holding modifier keys.
I'm currently using the Magic Mouse. I can try another mouse once I get home, but I've got a feeling it's not that cause I tried using my trackpad to click instead while holding down shift and control, and it still acted as if I right-clicked.
Any way I can test out if it's my mouse?
Are you usually using a pc? Holding down the control key on a mac and clicking pops up the right-click menu in all software, it's a system wide convention (and a relic from the days Apple insisted that users should only be using a single mouse button).
To get the result you are probably looking for, i.e., overrriding a master page item, hold down *Command* and shift on the Mac.
