    Default Cursor jumping

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I've got a problem with my cursor when in 3d. It is very hard to snap to a point, it just keeps missing. I've tried altering the mouse settings and tried another mouse, but it's still the same.
    Can someone please tell me how I can fix this to behave as well as it does in 2d.
    Thanks.

    You might check if hardware acceleration is on

    Are you using the 3D osnaps or the 2D?
    Are you running too many Osnaps at once?
    Do you have GRID SNAP turned on?
    Are you in a PERSPECTIVE view?
    If hardware acceleration is on, try turning it off.

    Have tried all the input. Putting the acceleration on has stoped the cursor from plinking but, it's still moving over the screen like it's on cannabis and in a world of it's own. It's not crisp as it should be. Any more ideas would be appreciated!
    Many thanks.

    Get with the 'program'?
    Sorry, the devil made me do that, I enjoyed your allusion.
    Is your mouse battery (if there is one) giving up the ghost?
