Lock cursor fails

Wprothero
Folks:
I know there was a recent post about this, but can’t find it. Anyway, I’m updating an old project and find that “lock cursor” no longer works.

Is there a workaround? I can make an image follow the cursor and approximate the older behavior, but unless I can do something with the cursor, it’s going to be confusing to the user.

It is important for my app to get the working.

Best,
Bill

Ok, it only fails in the IDE. I can live with that.

Are you seeing this in standalones or just in the IDE only?

If the latter it may be this confirmed issue:

So far, I only see this in the IDE, on OSX, 10.11.6. It is ok in OSX standalones. I’m now testing on Windows 10 and will get back.

Hi Bill,

It is a known issue, and it affects only the IDE (
