I can't type with a mouse either, nor drink Guinness out of an empty glass....

If you mean the cursor doesn't move if you are typing then that is perfectly OK. You use the mouse to reposition the cursor if you wish to, say, insert a (typed) word or correction or cut and paste.

Hi Holligan, what progam are you using when this happens? If you are using Net Objects Fusion this happens when you click on the properties palette. This happens in other programs too that have dialogue boxes that stay open. You have to double-click again in the text to return to typing.

Further to Pesala's posting, if by any chance you have enabled Focus in TweakUI, you will find only the window or program the mouse cursor is on will be operational.

In other words if you have two or more windows running you have to move the cursor to which one you wish to work on; doing this also returns the top bar to the blue colour fill-in.
