Description David Vancouvering 2008-02-11 21:38:15 UTC
On a regular basis I lose the ability to set my cursor in the editor.  Everything else works fine, but this situation
forces me to exit out of the IDE, and when I restart things are back to normal.

I'm not sure if this is always the case, but I noticed twice it happened after acting on a hint (e.g. "add @Override
Comment 1 David Vancouvering 2008-02-12 00:36:55 UTC
More data: this happens whenever I execute any "lightbulb" tip, be it "add @Override notation" or "insert missing method".

I am marking this a P2 because the only workaround is to exit the IDE after running each suggestion, which makes this
feature basically unusable.  I suspect it may be a Mac-only issue, so please when you try to reproduce use a Mac.  I'm
on OSX 10.4.

I am encountering this with the latest build, with a fresh userdir.

Do you mean that you can't see the editor cursor anymore after using a hint? That is probably a duplicate of issue
#119617. If you think it's different please reopen.
