    In AutoCad 2000 I had (CTRL+Right mouse button) programmed to zoom extents:

    'ZOOM _E

    However, when I put this in the Acad.mns file for Acad2004, it doesn't work

    When i activate this command, it zooms extents and then there is an extra
    'enter' that resumes the zoom command.

    I have taken all spaces etc out from after the command line, there are none
    there. I have also noticed that when I hold down the control key, and press
    the mouse button, It zoom's to extents immediately when the mouse button is
    pressed. The zoom command is reactivated when you RELEASE the mouse button.

    Any thoughts or suggustions would be greatly appreciated.

    Ever since 2000i, unless I'm missing something, right clicking has been
    strange when used with CTRL. For instance, if you turn on Cycle to select
    objects, pressing the enter key exits cycling, but not the active command.
    But if you use right-click to exit cycling it behaves as a double click,
    same as hitting enter twice, and exits the command or the option within the

    That appears to be what's happening with your zoom_e. You're getting the
    equivalent of two hits on the enter key. Except, for you, it's repeating
    the last command. Check your "right click customization" settings in
    options > user preferences. See if repeat last command is selected for
    either of the first two options. If it is and you change it, the
    right-click may just dump you out of the current command.

  3. If you use the Middle button to pan, you can double click the middle button
    to zoom extents....

    Just a thought.
