quattro pro failure!

I am trying to work in quattro pro. I just had my machine returned from being serviced and now i can navigate around the page without using the mouse. How do i fix this?

I have never used this program and the only suggestion I can offer, unless someone comes up with a valid solution, is to reinstall it.
If you reinstall it from your disks it should put the program back to its default settings and would hopefully work normally.

but just to be clear, you say you CAN move around without using the mouse... do you mean you can ONLY move around without using the mouse, ie you have to use the arrow keys, or did you mean CAN'T navigate without the mouse, i.e. the arrow keys don't work?

If it's the latter of these I suspect there is a setting in the options of the program to enable/disable the feature.

I'd guess it's available via the menu by either;

I don't know for sure... just guessing!

Good luck,

I can move the mouse around and click on other boxes and they move. but if i use the arrows it moves the whole screen and not the box. Even enterdoesnt do anything other than allow the box to total it doesn't move.

I used to use Quattro Pro and I think what you are referring to is a setting whereby the arrow keys move a page up/down. I cannot remember under which heading it came under but Tools Options Preferences spring to mind. I remember that this caught me out years ago.
