For space autoattack there are a couple things you need to make sure are happening.

First make sure the weapons you want as part of the auto attack are actually in your tray, not just the weapons tray. They don't have to be in the visible part, meaning the 3 visible lines of the tray but should be in one of the hidden ones.

Second, right click all the attacks you want autofired in your weapons tray so they get the green outline. I'm sure most are familiar with this.

Next and most important. For space autoattack in controls, at the bottom set it to Maintain. Do not use any other setting. While Toggle: change cancels and Toggle: non-combat cancels do work they have the problem that using certain abilities cancels one, and getting out of a certain range of enemies cancels the other. This doesn't happen with Maintain. DO NOT under any circumstances choose Toggle: Never Cancels. this setting has been bugged and does not work as it should. It actually prevents you from firing at all.

Next even though autofire is active you must hit the spacebar to initiate fire in an instance while in firing range of an enemy, but only on the initial attack.

Other than that everything should work fine.
