cursor sticks on the '+' position

Recommended Posts

[Confused] Can someone tell me why my cursor keeps sticking to the "+" crosshair position after a few hours or so of working with VW11? no arrows, no hands etc. the program in general is working fine. I upgraded to a 256MB video card but that did not solve the problem. i have to restart the program and sometimes reboot computer to get normal cursor functions back.

THe + cursor usually means you have a tool active that requires you to draw something. For example, the cursor turns to + with the rectangle tool. It stays that way even after you've drawn the rectangle until you switch to another tool, such as the 2d selection arrow.

Katie, the cursor actually sticks to anything, it could be the pan tool too. It always sticks on whatever tool i was using at the time it desides to stick. Right now i can't get rid of the hand cursor. i will have to reboot AGAIN!

Have you updated to SP2 recently?

Are you using a Radeon or Rage? If it's a Rage, what type of Rage?

it's a Radeon

I updated to SP2 a month ago- HUUGGEEEE DISASTER!

the dongle was wiped out and i could not use VW11, i ended up reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling windows because of that stupid dongle. even after reversing out of sp2 still no luck. I refuse to update to SP2 at this point. someone sent me a solution to it but i don't trust anything now, it was such a huge ordeal i don't want to do it again.

Thanks for your responce.

It does not matter what i do it will never leave the + position. I can select a million functions and it will never change its position.

very strange.

what happens if you double click on the 2d selection tool when this happens?

What does the cursor change to?
