Sorry, After additional checking I could reproduce what you report. One, two, or even the three locators disappear, yet the plot keeps working as if the actual locators were being dragged no matter where I click the mouse pointer (seems that somehow the (*LocatorAutoCreate -> True*) works although the Locator point does not show up . -----Mensaje original----- De: E.

I mean, I cannot make the locators vanish. For me, they seem to be working right. However, I have experienced that kind of problem with Locators and LocatorPane in many other situations, even more, in occasions, with, say, a three or four locators Bezier (or not Bezier) construct, very similar to yours, when I attempt to drag just one locator, all locators move together, if they in fact move at all. Sometimes the locator moves out of control, away from the Mouse pointer, and sometimes the locator just freezes. In the Benchmark, my Windows 7 based (4 cores/ 8 Threads, 12 Gb RAM) computer scores 1.17 over (1.00), well above the 3.07 GHz Core 7i -950 (8 cores) used as reference. So it should not be a lack of resources problem. What I actually think is that there is some underlying design problem with the Locator construct itself. E.
