Hello,

I have used this setup ever since I started working back in Autocad 2003. Basically, you setup your right mouse button to bring up the object snap menu. It is awesome and I am suprised these cad packages do not set this up as the default. So, now I am working with Draftsight, but I am not sure where or how to modify the package files(in Autocad it was acad.mnu or acad.mns) to enable this. In Autocad the snap menu was POP0. In Draftsight, I think they call it ESnap Overides. When you right click in Draftsight, it does show this menu, but it is a sub menu(see attached)....I want it to be the main menu when you right click. I want it show up in every context when I right click.

Does anybody know how?

In General:
Here is how to setup your right mouse button to bring up a specific command:
1.Tools\Customize Interface\Mouse Actions\Right Clicks

The problem that I have found is that the Right Click command does not work.
The other commands (Shift+Right Click, Ctrl+Right Click, and Ctrl+Shift+Right Click) do work as far as I can tell.

2. If you know how to program and can follow what Draftsight is doing, the customization file is located here:
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\DraftSight\1.2.265\UI\english\application.xml

In your case:
Change any of the three working shortcuts to "ESnap Menu"
