Title: Can't use keyboard in Inspector
Post by Barbara117 on Apr 4th, 2015, 9:41pm

Hi --

I'm testing the 6.1.3 demo and am having trouble using the inspector. I can't type anything in any of the fields - I can only use the mouse.  It's like it doesn't even acknowledge I'm in that dialog when I use the keyboard, even if I click it before I start to type. Anything I type gets put in as part of my note or wherever my cursor happened to be when I opened the inspector.

For example, I wanted to search for the URL attribute to make it a key attribute. I can't type "url" in the search box in the System pane in the inspector, but I can paste "url" into that field from a text editor by right-clicking in the search field and choosing Paste. Using CMD-v pastes the text into my note.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks -- Barbara

I can't replicate this using v6.1.3 (on OS 10.10.2) - which doesn't mean you don't have a problem, just that it seems to not affect all v6.1.3 users.

FWIW, the v6.1.3 release - full app and demo are the same - should report in the About dialog as v6.1.3b121. If your demo doesn't show that, I'd grab a new copy.

Thanks. I decided to restart my computer and that seems to have fixed it.
