My sanity is suffering today.Â Instead of taking a decaf tea break, I feel I must write to urge you to DRILL CONTROL+CLICK.Â Do exercises.Â Have a mantra.Â Whatever.Â Just get used to it.
I know James blogged about this last week, but I don’t think you can appreciate how hard this habit is to establish until you are messing with your first site plan in 2008.
Click more to find out what is making me so crazy.
In Civil 3D 2008, in order to select parcel segment labels (and many other types of labels) you must hold down the CONTROL button as you click.Â If you don’t you actually pick both the label and the segment, and you wind up erasing the whole segment.
I thought I picked the label…. but not paying attention I pressed erase and CRUD.Â This has been really messing with my aversion to the undo command with parcels, but so far undo has been treating me well.Â I’ve done this about 30 times in the past hour.
Hold down CONTROL then CLICK the label and it selects what you want.
