This is on a mac, but it could be the same for PC perhaps,

when using the zoom tool I'm finding that when the mouse cursor reaches the edge of the screen it stops so for the viewports at the right hand side of layout it's practically impossible to use. The limited action also occurs on the numerical sliders aswell.

this is LW9 build 998 (mac32) on OSX10.4.7 on a dual 2.5 ghz G5 with 4.5 GB ram a Nvidia GeForce 6800 ultra and a 30inch cinema display.

If you are getting the same and have reported it as a bug, then let me know if not then I'll put it on the list.

regards

Well it's not a bug since this is how it's supposed to work but it irritates me too! :D

Are you perhaps in Tablet Mode rather than Mouse Mode?

Yep thats not a bug, its one of many interface quirks that made it often hard to work effective with LW.

Hi There,

well it doesn't happen in Lw 8.5 and it doesn't do it in Lw9's modeller

so it can't be normal!

I'll check out the tablet/mouse mode in the morning as I've just turned everything off.

cheers

Thanks Bog,

mine was on tablet too!

Mind you, using my wacom with it on tablet had just the same limited movement.

cheers
