    So it's like this

    I ran a small little test map, and when I came back to Hammer, I'm locked in camera mode. I can't create brushes, entities, or even select anything. I've tried rebooting my comp and it still won't do anything but camera. Trying to create a selection brush in any of the x,y, and z windows just pans them around.

    help plz

    Try reseting your sdk game configs from your sdk window.

    You've gotten locked into 2d pan mode. It's not supposed to be toggle-able, but sometimes it gets stuck. Hit the space bar when your mouse is on a 2d window to toggle out of the view mode.

    from the sdk docs:

    "Space(Hold) Use the Left Mouse Button to 'Drag' the 2D view around."

    Ya that happened to me about a week ago... it's tough when you have to be smarter than the complicated software you're working with LOL!
