Tutorial 4, using Mac and Safari, Right clicking on in a Drawing.

Currently going through Tutorial 4. Never had this problem in the Part Studio, but when I go to right click in a drawing nothing happens. Any thoughts?

    Hi William.  Do you have a document open and the active tab is a drawing?  If so, are you right clicking on the drawing tab, on the background of the drawing or somewhere else?  When I right click on the drawing / sheet background using Safari, I see a dropdown menu of commands "Sheet properties...", "Zoom to fit", "Zoom to sheet" and "Zoom to window".  When I right click on the drawing tab (at the bottom of the browser), I see a dropdown menu of different commands - "Open in new browser tab", "Rename...", etc.  Thanks.

    I have same problem... I know how to right click on a Mac (control-click) and when I do that in Exercise: Basic Drawing I don't get the anticipated/promised drop down menu. Running Mac, Safari, all the latest software:

    It works for me using the trackpad. Can you try that to see if it is related to the mouse for some reason?

    I'm seeing the same issue on Mac, Firefox. Right click works in Parts or Assembly but not in drawings. I tested with an USB mouse and things work correctly.

    You can fix the problem by going to settings and make your mouse have Right Click.

    It worked for me.

    Right-click is not working in drawings. It works for me with part studios but there is no dropdown menu when I right-click anywhere in a drawings studio. How do I fix this?
