Title: Double-click to create new note
Post by Andrew Saffer on Nov 9th, 2016, 6:04pm

Hi everyone,

In Tinderbox 5, I used to be able to create a note on the spot by double-clicking.

I have since upgraded to Sierra, a Logitech MX Master mouse, and Tinderbox 6. I can no longer double-click to create a note, and I'm trying to isolate the problem.

Does Tinderbox 6 let you double-click to create notes?

Thanks, Andrew

Yes it does still work in v6.x. I've just tested v6.6.5 on 2 different Macs. I opened a new document and doubled-clicked to make a new note in both of the default views (Map, Outline).
  • On a 2011 Macbook Pro with macOS 10.12.1 I used the trackpad and a Magic Mouse.
  • On a 2013 Macbook Air I with macOS 10.12.1 I used the trackpad and an unbranded (cheap!) compact USB cable travel mouse plus a really old USB cable Microsoft WheelMouse Optical v1.1A.
All tests worked. My mouse tests above just used auto-detected mouse settings. The above would suggest some issue with your Logitech mouse, perhaps the drivers (if any). Or, it may be some utility is detecting the action an suppressing or changing the outcome of mouse double-clicks (e.g. in the way auto-correct tools like TextExpender do). Does double-clicking work in other apps as expected?

It turns out that Sierra had just made the double-click speed impossibly fast. An Archive and ReInstall helped. All done. Thanks, Andrew
