Control-click for right-click on text not working?
In Mac OS 10.8.4 on an early 2008 iMac, I can't get control-click (for right-click) to work when looking at a text (e.g., to open a sentence diagram). Control-click is otherwise working in my other programs.
Is there something in Preferences I need to enable for this?
As I am sure you are aware, BW9 is running on a Mac using an emulator. As such, Mac keyboard shortcuts do not work. I am not aware of any preference or shortcut solution to your issue. I use a MBP and simply use the two finger tap for the right mouse.
Yes, exactly! I had BibleWorks on a MBP and took for granted the two-finger right-click. Now that I've changed jobs, I no longer have access to that computer and have an iMac instead. I wouldn't think of this as a "keyboard shortcut," though, so I'd think it would be something BW would want fully functional for a good Mac experience across the board?
Of course, if I end up with a magic trackpad, that would fix this....
To any BibleWorks staff reading this--is this already listed somewhere as a known issue for desktop Macs?
Is it a one-button mouse? With the mouse plugged in, go to System Preferences | Mouse. Is Secondary click enabled?
Yes on both counts. Does this work for other folks?
Abram, I don't have a one-button mouse so I am not able to test it.
Is your mouse a mighty mouse?
If not, is it older than a mighty mouse?
Does control-click work for you in other applications?
I'm in touch with our CodeWeavers contact. They ask if you have enabled Secondary click under System Preferences | Mouse (not Trackpad).
