Hello, Henrik

this happens if DisplayPageBreaks is on (to be altered in 
OptionInspector>Notebook>Display Options).  I have put this into 


(make a backup copy, before altering it ;-)

                Item["ShowPageBreaks ON ", ShowPageBreaks->True,  Scope->NotebookDefault],
                Item["ShowPageBreaks OFF", ShowPageBreaks->False, Scope->NotebookDefault],
	        Item["PageBreak Above Cell ", PageBreakAbove->True,      Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["NO   PageBreak Above ", PageBreakAbove->False,     Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["AUTO PageBreak Above ", PageBreakAbove->Automatic, Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["PageBreak Below Cell ", PageBreakBelow->True,      Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["NO   PageBreak Below ", PageBreakBelow->False,     Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["AUTO PageBreak Below ", PageBreakBelow->Automatic, Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["PageBreak Within Cell", PageBreakWithin->True,     Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["NO   PageBreak Within", PageBreakWithin->False,    Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["AUTO PageBreak Within", PageBreakWithin->Automatic,Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["GroupPageBreak Within", GroupPageBreakWithin->True,Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["NO   GroupPBr. Within", GroupPageBreakWithin->False,Scope->SelectionCell],
	        Item["AUTO GroupPBr. Within", GroupPageBreakWithin->Automatic,Scope->SelectionCell],

I put it between the definitions for   Menu["&Window", {...}]   and   Menu["&Help", {}]   and the
whole change provides me with an additional drop down menu PageBreaks to easily
switch PageBreaks on and off for cells and also to switch DisplayPageBreaks on and off.

Thema:	[mg19138] Mathematica loosing input focus all the time	


I am using Mathematica 3.0.1 under Windows NT. I fiddled with a few of
the 10 gezillion options in option inspector and now, whenever I am
trying to type in some text into a Mathematica notebook, the input focus
is lost from the notebook window I am typing in.

This happens whenever I hit return. The input focus pops to the
Mathematica main menu bar instead and all further text input is ignored
until Iclick with the mouse back into the notebook window.

Does anybody know how to reset this? It must be caused by some
modification to the stylesheet that I made. In partcular this does not
happen on notebooks using one of Mathematica's stylesheets.

Desperate and forever thankful,
