Greetings: I am using Mathematica 188.8.131.52 on Suse 9.1. Most of the following strangeness happened with Mathematica 4.x versions as well. Anything specific to the most recent version will be noted. Here is the problem which has always happened with all Mathematica versions and still occurs: When I click on a graphic such as a plot output, Mathematica should highlight the graphic with a bounding box, and supply anchors with which to resize the graphic. The box and anchors should remain *indefinitely* until I click somewhere else to signify that I'm done. Instead, the selected state of the graphic disappears in about 2 seconds, so it is too quick to get a hold of one of the anchors to resize. In prior Mathematica versions there was a trick that would make it possible to deal with this short-lived bounding box problem: I could right-click on the graphic, which would make a menu appear. Left-clicking would then make the menu disappear, and the bounding box would reappear, but this time it would persist like it should. Then I could resize the graphic as desired. What is different now in Mathematica 184.108.40.206 is that the menu no longer appears when I right-click. Is this menu *supposed* to be there? Why might it not be there anymore? Has anyone else noticed this sort of behavior? Any ideas how to fix? Thanks. -- _______________________________________________________________________ Christopher R.
