The mouse right-click option has stopped working with ArcGIS10. It happened suddenly - the mouse is ok (not broken) as it works with other programs. Do you know what happened and how to fix it?

The right-click option is useful for editing as you can just right-click select from the drop down list, absolute coordinates, direction, delete sketch etc. It is also not working, when I'm in layout view as I can't change grid properties.

Not really an answer, but have you tried restarting your computer? I've had odd problems in the past with ArcGIS which have gone away after restarting windows. –  djq Jul 17 '11 at 20:42
    
Is the right-click broken in all circumstances, or just when editing? Eg, can you right-click on a layer's name in the Table of Contents, or the data frame itself, or a legend object (scalebar, etc)? This will help to decide where the problem lies –  Stephen Lead Jul 17 '11 at 23:20
    
I wonder if you have an extension installed that subclasses the activeview's window and is catching the WM_ right click message without forwarding it. –  Kirk Kuykendall Jul 17 '11 at 23:45

It can be an extension issue in ArcGIS - PLTS (now called ESRI Production Mapping ) can effect the mouse functions. –  Mapperz Jul 18 '11 at 20:37
    
Although this was over a year ago have you found the solution? I'm experiencing the same problem. –  user12972 Nov 21 '12 at 13:52
