This actually happens in a number of Adobe operations. Sometimes I can tab from one selection to the next and get by, but with this particular operation, I can only close the window with the mouse.
I actually get past the first import as timeline window where I can select the premiere project file. I then get to select the sequence and that is when I have no mouse control within the window and
thus can not select the sequence. Using the tab or enter keys also does not work. I can only close the window. Any suggestions?
Operating System... brand/model mouse... exact mouse driver
With more informatoin, someone may be able to help
Right now, you've said you have a loaf of bread that doesn't taste good... but nobody knows if it is white bread, wheat bread, or bread made from seeds off a chicken coop floor
>Using the tab or enter keys also does not work
OK... you MAY have more than just a mouse problem

This is almost always a video driver. See John's info, and look at both video and mouse drivers.
Windows 7 Ulitmate 64bit ATI Radeon 4850
ATI Radeon HD4800 Driver 8.681.0.0 was updated to 8.950.0.0 = no improvement
HID compliant mouse driver 6.1.7600.16385 disabled that and loaded logitech HID driver 184.108.40.206 = no improvement
Same problem with microsoft usb mouse or logitech wireless mouse.
This is a serious problem because it forces me to export media from premiere in order to import to Encore,
which with AVCHD media takes hours on my system (and probably introduces one more generational loss).
Here is a previous thread with what I think is a similar issue:
The symptom was not being able to click off various windows (i.e. can't answer yes/no, but can exit using "escape"). Is that what you are seeing?
Has operation been normal previously with this same video card?
It's not totally consistent between pop-up windows. Sometimes I can tab from one selection to the next, other times not.
Sometimes the only thing I can do with the mouse is exit the window. I noticed today that when I bring up the character
window and try to change character color, I can not change the color on the color chart; no response from mouse click.
I haven't tried reinstalling encore [update - I did reinstall, no luck].
I have a feeling I've had this problem for quite awhile, but now while working with the avchd format I really need to
import directly from the premiere project file, so that has been a game stopper. Right now I've taken the project
over to a lower powered mac and am finishing it there.
Maybe I should try finding another mouse driver [update - I found a third mouse driver and reinstalled, no luck]
Same problem with me. Turned out that screen resolution and setting of large icons was the problem. Everything put to standard/native solved this. But now I have very small menus, not nice for my old eyes...
In fact I have this problem with several dialogues of Encore. E.g. in the preview window the buttons don’t work either. Native resolution is 1920x1200 on a Nvideo Quatro 1600M when I set the icons to 150% (100 and 125% are working). Installed the latest drivers.

Wow, I would have never thought of that.
It fixed my mouse problem too.
I've only seen this problem with Adobe apps.
They should know about this fix since it kind of narrows down the parameters for troubleshooting.
Similar has been reported with dialog boxes in Photoshop too.
Glad that you got it fixed. Do not know what it is, about the 150%, that messes things up.
PS - I also reported the "Personal Information" to Adobe, so it should all get cleaned up soon.
Hello, I just had a problem similar to this: lines appearing everyehere, somestimes the brushdots didnt appear at all, the first line a drew = nothing, second line drew = first line. It was really wierd.
I tried almost everything, from re-installing PS, Going back to vanilla settings, reistalling mouse drivers. But nothing of that worked.
BUT I FINALLY I FOUND A SOLUTION! and it was so easy and obvius that i behind it.
All I had to do was to update my graphicscard driver! Yeah...
I hope it works for you to.
best of luck.
