Mac Works: Cursor Is Watch in Database, I-Beam in Spreadsheet

PSS ID Number: Q104478 Article last modified on 10-22-1998

2.0 3.0 4.0



The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, versions 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 ==


If you place your cursor over the field name in a Works database or over the Entry bar in a spreadsheet document, your cursor may turn into a watch instead of a hand (in a database) or the I-beam (in a spreadsheet).

This problem occurs while using Apple LaserWriter driver 8.0.


To resolve this issue, enter the Page Setup dialog box and press OK to exit it. Your cursor will now be displayed correctly.

The cursor will continue to display correctly until you exit Works. When you start a new session, you must enter the Page Setup dialog box again to display correct cursors.


These display problems do not occur with LaserWriter drivers 7.x or 8.1.1.
