Chase the tabs

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 years ago
I have seven maps open.
I can see all the tabs at the top of my user interface.
But I can't select the tab I want.
When I point my mouse at a tab, the tab of the currently active map moves to that position.
This continues until you click on the surface of the current map.

From the video, it looks like the left mouse button is constantly pressed? This might explain the dragging-behavior your experiencing? Are you using a touch device or a touch screen perhaps?

It was a mouse and it was not pressed.

There are other instances where the UI misbehaves particularly when selecting topics or clicking links on topics. An extra click is often required.

And I have not got "click lock" enabled.

Thank you for the extra information, Andrew.

Does the icon of a constantly pressed left mouse button always show up when you're recording videos in this way? I can't help but think about some kind of mouse button being stuck as this might also explain the behaviour of MindManager?

Was this issue resolved? I have had the same problem since I installed Mindmanager 16 (not sure if there's a connection). "click lock" is not enabled. thanks!

I haven't experienced it yet with MindManager 16.

Andrew, how about Mindmanager 15, did you keep on having this behaviour or did it go away somehow. I currently have it in both versions, thought I might be in pen mode but the pen mode / mouse mode only appears when I plug in the wacom tablet (which is rarely ever the case)
Anyway, good to hear you're not struggeling with this anymore.

I think it did continue with MindManager 15.

Same problem on both 2016 and 2015. Quite annoying.  Right click on tab often selects without the imaginary click and drag. But then sometimes the context menu pops up.

have you pressed the "me too" button at the top of this thread? Not sure if that is registered somewhere, but it might be.
I received (in context of a different but seemingly related issue) the recommendation to reinstall the software, haven't tried it yet though.

New install on new computer, same issue (using the same maps). Would love to get rid of this, it makes working very clumsy
