Good afternoon everybody!

Does anyone else have problems with their mouse in Word after having installed SDL Trados 2007?

It appears that I can't left-click on words anymore or adjusts tabs in the ruler. I can not use my mouse to click anywhere inside the document, I have to manually move the cursor up and down in my document by using my arrow keys. These problems only started up after the installation of Trados.

I tried using the "fix program" functionality within the Windows control panel, but that did not seem to make a difference. Does anyone else have a quick fix for this or would it be best for me to uninstall & reinstall?

I am running Word 2007 in Windows Vista.

Thank you for your input - it is much appreciated!

Kerstin

Did you actualise your mouse driver? Sep 1, 2008

Is your mouse clean? Is the mouse not damaged?
I wouldn't know about any inteference between the Trados template and the mouse behaviour, but one never knows...

Jerzy,

The mouse driver is indeed up to date. I actually have the problem only in Word and the problem occurs with my built-in laptop mouse and my external USB driven wireless mouse. The mouse works flawlessly with other programs, just as it always has...

Never heard of it before Sep 2, 2008

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your mouse driver? If you have a specific configuration program for the mouse, check the settings in this (sometimes these are program-related).
