    Weird Cursor Behavior

    Level 7
      Folks,

      I've written about this before but to no avail...

      On a few pages I've generated in Dreamweaver, my cursor and the line of
      text it's supposed to be on don't match anymore. The cursor seems to
      have a life of its own yet typing still goes along the line of text. I
      need to re-click on the line to put the cursor back where it belongs.

      This is truly annoying!

      I've cleaned the pages, removed any excess tags and whatnot - really
      cleaned the code, as far as I can see, but the problem persists.

      Has anyone seen this? Any ideas?

      Here's an example of a page where this happens.

      Thanks,

      J

          Sounds like another app has taken focus from DW since you have to
          re-click to bring back focus... if I understands you right?

          What is running... and how is the setup. I doubt it has to do with DW.

            Kim. No. it's DW, that's for sure and it only happens on some pages, not
            on all. Apparently I add one more table or cell and the page goes all
            haywire. If I remove what I just added... it's too late. That page is
            forever messed up.
