Mouse clicks & scroll don't work in text editor in Windows 7

Mouse clicks & scroll don't work in text editor in Windows 7

Postby non-carbondated on Wed Oct 24, 2012 12:03 am

I don't know how this happened, but I've lost the ability to use my mouse in the text editor area in Sublime Text 2. The mouse clicks work on the tabs above the text editor area and work in the code map, but not the text editor. I can't select any text with the mouse, move the cursor with the mouse or scroll through code with the mouse.

I'm using version 2.0.1, Build 2217 running in Windows 7.

The other posts I've read here say to re-install and/or reboot. Neither of these options has worked for me.

What I've tried:
1. rebooting
2. uninstalling and installing
3. uninstalling, rebooting and installing
4. uninstalling, running IObit Uninstaller and CCleaner (to clean out any lingering registry files), rebooting and reinstalling

When uninstalling, I've deleted the 'Sublime Text 2' folder from %appdata%. I've tried replacing my 'Sublime Text 2' folder in %appdata% with one copied from a co-worker's machine. I've rebooted after doing the fresh installs.

NOTHING HAS WORKED.

Also, the Vintage package is being ignored in both the default and user preferences.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get the mouse working again? I really enjoyed using Sublime Text until this happened.

Same problem here. On occasion, the mouse in the text area works, but usually does not. I have not been able to figure out the cause.

Try with the portable version of ST2 which is like a clean install.
If it happen as well, it's a bug.
If it doesn't happen, more likely something related to plugins.

I confirm similar problem..

in my case, I use V 2.0.1, build 2217

I did pretty much same as the author of this subject, reinstalled and tried different setups, with and without plugins/settings.
It has no effect on the issue.

But in my case mouse seems to work perfectly in editor, ut in side-bar left-mouse button does not work at all.
I can activate tabs with left click, but cant close them by clicking on "x".

seems to be a bug.

PS: WinRegisty has no entries of sublime except file extensions

Same problem. Also worthy of note is that, to me, it happened suddenly to both ST2 and ST3 at the same time.

tito, I have three monitors. Could this be related?

This was happening to me, with ST2, I use two monitors with ultramon. Since I have installed ST3, this isn't happened. I also updated my graphic card drivers.

This is happening to me with Sublime 3 build 3047, on Win 2k3 32bit. Single-monitor setup.

Things I tried:
  • Upgraded video drivers to a 2013 version (NVDA GeForce 7300 GT).
  • Disable font smoothing, switch between standard and cleartype
  • Disable video acceleration, switch to 8bit colors, 800x600 resolution.
  • Portable version of ST3 and ST2.
  • Virtual mouse (using the MouseKeys accessibility feature)
  • Cleanup registry (manually removing all sublime* instances)
  • Windows safe mode
  • Revert to fresh install.
... Help?
