Mouse’s right button

In AutoCAD’s case, it was very common to use the right mouse button to execute the same command again. In Microstation’s case is widely used to reset a command equivalent to the esc key in AutoCAD. But, since AutoCAD 2000 contextual dialog box allows other options, it is questionable whether it is better. For this,

Failure cursor, Bentley V8i
