Problem with mouse use in the Unit Name dialog

Version: 3.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Notebook

Problem

Inserting a unit from the Unit Name dialog may not work successfully if you use a Microsoft IntelliType mouse driver with jump-to enabled on the mouse cursor. Using the mouse to scroll through the entries in the left box jumps the attention to the Insert button. Exiting the dialog can only be accomplished by exiting the program.

Explanation

The jump-to feature automatically moves the mouse cursor to the default button or selection in a dialog. The Unit Name dialog in Version 3.0 is modeless, which may cause a conflict with the driver.

Solution

Disable the jump-to feature. Then, the mouse will work correctly in the dialog.
