Hi.

 

Has anyone else run into a little bug with the software that causes the program to shut down instantly, without warning and without saving anything from the current session (other that the normal autosave function)? It has happened to me on several occasions if I accidentally tap the escape key twice or more which is a reflex carried over from years of drawing with Autocad. The application just disappears as if you opened the task manager and shut it down there.

 

Softplan support said they cannot duplicate it and suggested I check my PC setting. I can't find anything that would cause this and it only happens with Softplan.

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers!

I've had Softplan shut down unexpectedly for no reason, with no warnings, but couldn't figure out what I'd done. It's very possible that I may have done the same thing. Although I cannot deliberately recreate it!

I tried to deliberately do it as well with no luck. It happens so fast I can't tell the exact key sequence. All I can really be sure of is that each time I am trying to back out of a command in process "AutoCAD style" by tapping the escape key a few times.

I did a few Google searches for "double tap escape" and similar phrases . Double tapping escape seems to be a shortcut for a quick exit from some games.

I have the same issue ( no warning and just shuts down) but can't figure out what key combo is making it shut down.

This is still an issue for me ... it happens reasonably often, but no matter how I try, I cannot deliberately recreate it ...

 

Is anyone else STILL seeing this issue.
