3ds max keyboard input doesn't work


#1

I have weird problem, when all keyboard keys like W for move or T for top view stopped working… keys like ctrl alt or shift work, and even if i try to rename objects, then all letters work, just keyboard shortcuts are broken which makes max unusable. this happened once some time ago on trial version, but I didn’t have any other plugins, so I reinstalled max and it worked. has anyone seen this problem? what can I do?

There’s a button on the toolbar that is supposed to be a key with an arrow pointing up. Click that button. There’s gotta be a hotkey for it, but i haven’t looked in to that.

If you mean shortcut override toggle, then it was first thing I tried, I also did reset max none of that worked

When you say you reset max, did you delete the user files? If not, go to

C:\Users%username%\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2015 - 64bit\

(depending on your version number and username)

And delete (or rename) the folder ‘ENU’.

This often fixes the problems with UI.

Thank you so much, deleting that folder fixed it for me
