Since S4 I have noticed issues in SE with regard to my mouse and the copy/paste function.  Usually it takes several attempts to select my area.  Same issue with expanding the element/channel names.  Originally chalked it up to an old PC and possibly issues with the registry but have since replaced the PC but have the same results.  Anyone else experiencing this?

That's 90% of what I do with singing faces. I haven't experienced any mouse problems even while I was using my 13 or 14 year old laptop unless travelling and not using a good mouse pad. While in OKC for the mini I used a plain desk top without pad and it is difficult to drag, drop, copy and paste. (expected it though so not a problem)

FWIW- I use a wireless logitech mouse. Almost 100% of my work is done in my recliner, I use the recliner arm as my mouse pad.

Nope.  I do about 99% of my sequencing on my desktop PC which has a USB connected trackball.  On the rare occasion that I sequence on the laptop, I always use a wireless mouse on a mousepad.  Can't stand using the built in track pad on the laptop for more than a very few movements.  I even carry a wired mouse in the computer bag in case the wireless is not working.

Back in the days in the USMC when everybody smoked the track balls used to get sticky along with the keyboards. We used to take them apart and clean with alcohol, non drinking kind. Like new.

All I have now are logiteck wireless. The old ones had a huge USB adapter and I was always afraid it would snap off, the new ones have a very small almost unnoticeable adapter.

Glad you fixored your problem.
