Why does the escape key effect items in the view filter manager in TBC v5.2
The Esc Key when pressed during a Graphics regen is an abort function - that stops the regen where it has got to (leaving a partial draw) so that you can action more changes before running a regen. This was added because when working with large files a regen can take a few seconds or longer and rather than waiting till the regen is completed you can Esc to abort and then carry out the additional changes before the Regen being actioned.
I think that this is what you are seeing - if you turn ff a Layer and the software starts a redraw / regen - then pressing Esc stops the redraw - I see that pressing Esc after changing the visibility of the layer does reinstate the layer visibility - I had not seen that so it is acting like an Undo - I am not sure that this was a deliberate action or not - I am not sure that it is a Good or Bad "feature" as I had never seen or used that - I think that it is unexpected behavior because the Esc key should abort a Regen / Redraw or Modeling action etc. and not act as an Undo
I will leave that to Tim to respond on that
Please be a little more explicit in what you are doing and when you press esc, what the results are and what you expected.
esc will stop the graphics from drawing. Otherwise I am not sure what you are asking.
Left click a layer in the view filter manager and turn a layer on or off,
hitting the escape button will reverse this action with no results in the
graphics window and halt the view filter command until your next mouse
click or space bar input for the view filter.
