As the title says suddenly I cant select text by either dragging or double-clicking it in  Poker software I use (Bodog), it works fine if I press "Num lk" the grey highlight turns blue and It works but that has to be done for every instance, meaning when the "bet box" goes away and re-appears as its my turn to act I cant select the text again.


Recently it didnt recognize the keyboard so I had to reinstall the drivers (It is a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate) and also contacted the poker company and they told me nobody has reported this and I feel the issue is on my side and keyboard/settings related.

Drivers...can be considered...are considered...both hardware and software issues.  Software (AV, firewall, video editors, graphics editors, etc.) all have drivers and those situations are considered software problems.  Drivers for components or perifpherals...are considered hardware problems.

 

Keyboards are hardware...all the time.  Mice...are hardware...all the time.

 

I don't think it's clear from your post...just where the problem lies...and that's probably why it's considered a hardware topic.

Does this work on any computer?  There exists software that intentionally makes it difficult to impossible to copy and paste in specific fields.

 

The first thing I'd do is fire up this program on a different computer to see how it behaves there.  If the behavior is consistent, then it's likely designed in.  If you have no difficulty with any other programs then I'd definitely say it's designed-in.
