Hey guys,


I am having the wierdiest problem.


When i click the open dialog on Quattro Pro, i browse to a folder then a bunch of items are listed naturally

when i press the down arrow instead of going From item 1 to Item 2 it skips Item 2 and goes to Item 3 then Item 5 then Item 7 and so on.


Strange thing is this only happens in Corel and not in any other application and only started happening yesterday

i have also reinstalled windows on another computer and fresh install of corel and does the same thing


Reason i need it to only go down one line is because of a Macro





The underscore at the end represent the highlighted Item


Before Pressing Down Arrow


 - Item 1_

 - Item 2

 - Item 3

 - Item 4

 - Item 5


After Pressing Down Arrow Once


 - Item 1

 - Item 2

 - Item 3_

 - Item 4

 - Item 5


any assistance would be appreciated i am about to pull my hair out haha

Just a guess!  It could be a minor glitch picking up a setting from WP line spacing setting.  I loved that program but went to MS as the OS's grew up.

I started with WPO9 and jumped to WPO12, so I have never seen it. But my take is OldPhil has the most likely guess

I have found nothing better than the WP world. It is the main reason for me to celebrate Win98SE. If you want WPO12, I think I can share it since they do not support it any more. Let me know.
