    on the left side there are 4 (or more) "flyout buttons"

    ahhh...  "Tool Options" according to one tutorial on-line.

    For instance rotation and move.


    without that (or more) I can't select anything on the build

    area.  I can load a file and slice it but I have no way to edit the drawing.


    Scanning the ALL3DP tutorial I see many of these tools but I only ever 

    saw 4 tools.


    Visually this is what happens:

    I load an STL file - it shows up in the draw area 

    I move my mouse cursor to the blue object and

    click on it and nothing happens.  I can  click all

    day - even right click - always nothing.  And

    yes my mouse works as I hear my computer

    give a little click/beep when I press the mouse



    I originally installed the 4.7 version

    and it worked for a few days.  


    Uninstalled and Reinstalled it.  No help, same thing

    uninstalled and loaded 4.4 - same issue.

    uninstalled and reloaded 4.7


    I just started Cura to see if there is anything else I 

    can say.  Seems very slow to load.


    ok - don't know what  to say.....

    crapola!  I loaded a file and it worked.


    now it tells me it can't load the file I was using

    I ca n only assume the file is corrupted.


    thank you for your response.

    and sorry for the false alarm


    stay healthy
