Default rename methods using Mac OS - 09-13-2011, 01:50 PM

Does anyone know how to rename a method using the Mac OS version of Alice?

After creating a new method for my world, say world.setup, I can't rename the method. I try Ctrl, Option, and Command clicking, but get no popup menu.

How do I rename methods, or is this a bug?

Ctrl in Alice acts as the command key for some strange reason, so you need to enable right-click by going to System Preferences -> Mouse -> Click on the drop-down to the right that says "Primary Click" and change it to "Secondary Click." (Not the one to the left, the one to the right)

If you are on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, just check the box that says "Secondary Click."

Hope this helps

This problem still hasn't been addressed. This is about to affect my grade in the class I am taking. If anyone has a solution please post. I have my mouse right click enabled and still no luck.

Also, when I try to change the preferences to display my program in Java style instead of Alice style it tells me to restart and when I restart it is still in Alice Style. Not sure if this is why it wont let you change the name of a method while running mac os .
