Writer: Watch Cursor Appears Repeatedly When Typing

When you are typing in Creative Writer, the watch cursor may appear every time you type a letter. This occurs if the text on the line you are typing is formatted for a different size than the text on the previous line. This problem only occurs when the line height of the two lines is different.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Creative Writer versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.1a. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


To avoid this problem, you may want to type all your text first, then change the fonts or point sizes.
