    Default Ctrl+left mouse click does not work as an object cycler

    I use this method of selecting objects in AutoCAD 2006 (and 2004, 2003 and 2002 for that matter) all the time. It's my fave way of selecting objects when they are piled on top of each other ... but this method doesn;t work in 2007!!!

    I almost hyperventilated when I realized this and then I decided that it was OK cuz someone here knew WTF was going on with that.

    Can anyone help me out?

    I don't normally use 2007 (I don't like it that much) but have been forced to use it as the current drawings I'm working on are all saved in '07 format ...

    Object cycling was changed to <Shift>+<Space>. Hold down <Shift> and use the <Space> to toggle. It's annoying at first but it was easy to get used to.

    They use <Ctrl> to cycle between sub objects in a 3D solid now.
