Can't type values into boxes
« on: February 03, 2017, 06:58:15 PM »
Hi all,

Hope somebody can help with this frustrating issue!

After about 2-3 minutes, I am unable to enter any values into boxes, whether it be for time acceleration, magnetising a white dwarf, etc. I can use the arrows to increase or decrease the values which is painfully slow (especially in the case of magnetisation!), and I can click into the boxes to show the cursor flashing, but nothing I type appears in the box.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Jack

Sorry for the issue. When this happens, are you able to use your keyboard for anything else in Universe Sandbox ? Or is it just the text boxes? For example, you should be able to press space bar to pause/resume the simulation, press "T" to toggle trails, etc.

Could you also send us your log file? It may have some important information in it. Instructions for finding and sending it are available here: http://universesandbox.com/support/emaillog
