Description Ryan 2013-09-16 18:54:33 UTC
Cursor gets stuck on typing mode (looks like an I) even when I move the cursor over Menu items, it doesn't change back to a pointer arrow.

When this happens, the mouse scroll wheel becomes unresponsive, I cannot use it to scroll up and down, I have to manually click on the scroll bar and drag, or use the up and down arrows.

When this condition occurred originally, it would happen a few minutes in to using MonoDevelop.  Not it happens right from the start every time.

To get my cursor working properly again, I need to slide it to the edge of my screen.  Mousing over the MonoDevelop title bar or the Windows toolbar on the bottom of my screen tends to correct the issue.

I'm using MonoDevelop 2.8.2 and Unity3D.

I'm running Windows 8.

MonoDevelop 2.8.2 is > 2 years old and has been unsupported for a long time. Please upgrade to MonoDevelop 4.x (Xamarin Studio).
