Hi there, I’m running renoise on my macbook with OSX 10.5.7 and after a few minutes of Renoising the mouse calibration (or something) is off. For example, if I click on line 4, line 3 will be selected, If I try to add some drive on my distortion dsp, I click the Razor option in stead of selecting the parameter…
I’ve had this problem twice today and a simple restart will do the trick but I like to work on with some projects so its a little anoying.
I tried to make a screenshot but those damn macs dont screencap the mouse arrow so its kind of useless…
btw, its not always after a few minutes but the last time I was just opening a few of my old songs and then it happened again. (sorry for all the crappy english)
Usually, a program gets the coordinates of the mouse-pointer from the system and since Renoise does not contain routines to move or restrict mousepointer movement (which are the only methods to tell the system it has to do something with the mousepointer coordinate-wise), it does not seem very likely Renoise can be a cause in that.
Renoise does call the system hardware on a different level than usual programs do and if the system has a glitch on that level, this might explain why ordinary programs like texteditors or browser work. But for instance you could also experience similar mouse problems in games.
When i google for mouse problems with Macbooks, i notice several issues popping up regarding the trackpad and folks trying to figure out how to disable it, two things are important: ignor accidental trackpad movements and ignore trackpad when mouse is present: http://www.tkjune.com/2008/11/07/enabledis…use-is-present/
