    Hey guys,

    Quick one for you... my option key on my 17" MB Pro doesn't seem to be working correctly. Keyboard viewer shows that it is recognizing the key being pressed, but the correct function isn't there. In particular, I'm using Illustrator, and it doesn't allow me to draw my shapes from the center when I use Option+Drag.

    I've tried resetting my keyboard to default settings and found a weird suggestion on a thread about deleting all "adobefnt" files, but neither seems to work.

    Any suggestions?? Thanks!

    The problem is most likely a global shortcut defined to use the Option key, in the Keyboard section of System Preferences.
