    Default Delete Key doesn't work on my Mac Book Pro in AutoCAD 2014

    Help! I installed Windows on my new mac book pro ( w/ bootcamp not parellels) and when I'm in autocad 2014 the delete key doesn't work. It works when I'm in Revit just not AutoCad. Is this a mac UI issue capability with autocad or is this something i can change/fix?

    Also, when i go into some of the menus only half of the text shows. (**SEE Attachment for more clarification)

    Is your PICKFIRST system variable set to 0? Typically, the delete key will work when PICKFIRST is set to 1.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    The delete key hardware is different on a MBP for some reason it seems. It seems to be more of a backspace key. I've installed Windows via Bootcamp on my MBP as well as AutoCAD 2014 and I am seeing the same thing.

    e= erase is the only way

    if pickfirst =1 doesnt work,
    if bootcamp> keyboard > tick the box use f1,f2, etc doesnt work....
