AutoCad 2011. Escape key stopped working.

Some days ago my escape key stopped working while using Autocad 2011.
I tried to unselect some objects, but the escape key just did not react..

After a reboot it happend once again.

I found out that this is a well known bug. Autodesk have made a hotfix that you will have to run to get rid of the problem. You can find the hotfix here at the Autodesk homepage.


  1. It seems to be a problem that happens when Photoshop or another Adobe CS program is open. Closing Photoshop must do the trick...

    I had the same problem with AutoCad 2011 and Photoshop CS4 but there are reports of the same issue using AutoCad2012.

  2. nice tip same for autoCAD 2013 - close Photoshop and esc key works again! Thanks!
