Hi! Another little puzzle:

Left my desk a few minutes ago and must have clicked something or other as I did, because now whenever I push the Shift or Ctrl buttons on my keyboard while running my application, little signs reading "Shift" and "Ctrl" appear on the screen.

I can only assume I accidentally clicked something in MMF2 as I got up from my desk, but I'm not sure what that could have been. Any ideas? Thanks!

All right, I've gotten rid of those little signs by rebooting my computer, but still curious as to where they came from and how else I could have gotten rid of them. Maybe it's something in Vista, since that's what I'm using, but they only seemed to pop up when I ran my application. If you've got any thoughts feel free to share, but looks like I managed to get things back to normal for now.

probably just from some other software you have installed

i have little tooltip things that pop up for a few seconds if i hit the "toggle" buttons like caps lock etc; they came with, of all things, a bluetooth stack

Actually it has to do with Vista. It's a long standing problem that occurs when I'm using Zbrush 3.1 or Lightwave as well. I'm not on or near my Vista machine at the moment or I would point you to where the settings are hidng. But I believe if it's the tablet settings (regardless of whether or not you have a tablet).

Edit: It happens on Vista x64. Not sure if it applies to 32, but it probably does as well.

Haven't experieced this in Vista Basic yet. Been running with it for about 8 months.
A decision making process is binary.
