So this is a new one for me: after working in AE for a bit, the computer will stop responding to mouse clicks. I can use the keyboard and move the cursor, but none of the buttons or the scrollwheel will result in anything. The only programs I have open are AE and sometimes Photoshop CS5. I tried plugging in a different mouse, same thing. Putting the machine to sleep and waking it up doesn't fix it either. The only solution seems to be rebooting, which is mighty inconvenient.
I'm running OSX 10.6.5 on a 2x2.8ghz Mac Pro with 32 gigs of RAM, and using the standard wired Apple Pro Keyboard with Apple Optical USB Mouse. Anyone know might be causing this?
Have you installed all CS5 updates?
Not really... my Adobe Application Manager is fritzing out (which is a whole other thread). I was able to reinstall the suite silently through the Terminal, and did the same for the independent Ps and AE updates from Adobe's website (the other updates were too many to download and install individually). These updates I only did this morning, and the mouse click issue has yet to return, but it's sporadic enough that I'm hesitant to call it fixed just yet.... hopefully though!
