Q - question

Sometimes my right mouse button doesn't work in Inventor.

A - answer Occasionally the right mouse button (RMB) stops working - clicking the right button does nothing.

There are two common/known causes:

  1. If you also use a 3dconnexion 3D mouse, update its driver (Windows driver).
  2. If the problem occurs after importing foreign CAD files (e.g. STEP), save the imported model in Inventor as soon as possible (immediately after import).
