[Pro] Problems

Running Freeway Pro 7.1.4 on OS10.12.6 Sierra

One of the problems is clicking on an HTML box to write some text, the curser doesn’t appear. Nothing happens. Eventually after many clicks, sometimes it’s possible to type. Then formatting the type doesn’t work reliably either.

Any suggestions, very welcome.

Thanks

Clicking once on an HTML item causes that item to be selected. The corners and sides show adjustment handles, and the Inspector shows the details of its geometry. Double-clicking an item moves focus inside that HTML item. A text insertion cursor will appear, and you can enter text or insert another inline item (text or graphic) into the parent element.

Try some experiments: draw a new HTML box, try double-clicking into it. Create a new document and try it there. I have never had this issue, so I can’t offer any other suggestions.

No worries. Thanks. I’ve tried new documents. I’ve made sure my version of Freeway is up to date. I haven’t used it in a long time and there is now something very wrong with it.

Thanks again.

I’ve come across something similar at times. The best solution I found is to select the HTML box so the adjustment handles show and then press the ‘return’ key which puts the text cursor into the box and you can edit away!

Wow! That seems to work. Thanks Gordon, you’ve saved my day/week…
