Slow mouse pointer when using Shift Key for Instant Details

Just in case someone else has a similar setup with their PC, I thought I'd share this. While attending the "Introduction to Accordance Bible Software" training session earlier today, I learned to use the Shift Key so that I could make the Instant Details window stay on the highlighted word from a Bible text and I could move the mouse pointer down to the Instant Details window and click on the Copy Instant Details button. The only problem I was having was when I did this, my mouse pointer moved very slowly. I'd have to move the mouse pick it up and move it down two or three times to get to the Instant Details window. I asked if others using Windows were seeing this and lucky me, I was the only one.

 

I finally found the problem, I have a wireless keyboard and mouse and under the settings in "HP Wireless Deluxe Desktop Combo" there was a setting under the Pointer Utility tab called Slow Motion. It was selected and it allows you to temporarily slow down the pointer to allow more precise positioning by pressing .... you guessed it, the Shift Key.

 

I just wanted to put this out there in case someone else ever runs into the same issue.

I'm glad that you were able to find the issue. Hopefully it didn't take too long to figure it out.

Thanks Graham, no it didn't take too long. Once I decided the problem wasn't Accordance related, since I was the only one with the issue ... I just took a look at my mouse settings and duh, it was right there. The mouse was behaving exactly as it was set to do ... move with precision when the Shift Key was held down or as far as I was concerned, move very, very slow.

 

By the way, thanks for the great training session on Accordance basics! I've attended several times and I seem to pick up something new each time.

I find teaching is often times like jazz improvisation. I'm hitting a lot of the same notes, but order, tempo, etc., may vary from class to class.

 

Glad to know we're helping you out.
